The March 13 Art of the Word program features Kevin Young, who is regarded as one of the leading poets of his generation. Young’s most recent book, Ardency: A Chronicle of the Amistad Rebels (2011), was named one of the best poetry books of 2011. The program will take place in the Central Library's Arrington Auditorium from 6:30-7:30 p.m. The program is free and open to the public. Copies of his books will be available for purchase. Students and young aspiring writers are encouraged to attend this inspiring program.
