3-30-11: Ugly World, Beautiful Language

 Carolyn Forché is an internationally acclaimed poet, translator, essayist and human rights advocate.  Her work has been published in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Nation, Mother Jones, and many other anthologies and journals. (She even reported from Beirut for NPR.) She is the director of the Lannan Center for Poetry and Poetics and she holds the Lannan Chair in Poetry at Georgetown University.

Tom talks to Carolyn Forché about her world travels, human rights work, and her “poetry of witness.”

On Sunday, April 10, Carolyn Forché will appear at the Baltimore Museum of Art to give the Joshua Ringel Memorial Reading, which is an annual event produced by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth.

The reading begins at 5 p.m. in the Baltimore Museum of Art’s Meyerhoff Auditorium. Appearing with Carolyn Forché will be the poet Nikola Madzirov. Seats are limited, so those wishing to attend should e-mail ctypr@jhu.edu with their name and number of seats requested.

Joshua Ringel was a CTY alumnus who loved literature and poetry. He died 15 years ago in a motorcycle accident, and his mother died of cancer in 2002; the annual reading honors them both.
