My beautiful meeting with Ilya Kaminsky last year in NYC . Talent and kindness spill from this brilliant human being. A memory to cherish for a lifetime
I’m beyond thrilled to share my fangirl moment of meeting my favorite poet today in NYC. I went for the poetry reading by Ilya Kaminsky from his latest book ” Deaf Republic” in the Lillian Vernon House. This location is part of the Spring 2020 Reading series by the creative writing students of NYU.
His latest book, “Deaf Republic” has created a stir in the literary world. It opens in a time of political unrest in an occupied country. where the citizens of the country pretend to be deaf as a mark of the protest of the killing of a young deaf child by the soldier.

I strongly urge everyone to read this book. A treat to myself in the National Month of poetry.
