World Poetry Day with George Kalogeris Event in Cambridge MA
March 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us for our annual celebration of World Poetry Day!
Local Greek and American poets will read from their works.
Once again the Greek Institute is pleased to participate in the celebration of World Poetry Day and will invite local poets to come and read from their works, some of which may have been inspired by Greek themes. This event is free and open to the public; donations are appreciated.
We especially thank George Kalogeris, poet and Professor of English and Classics in Translation at Suffolk University for organizing this evening’s readings. He is the author of a book of paired poems in translation, Dialogos, and of a book of poems based on the notebooks of Albert Camus, Camus: Carnets. His book of poems, Guide to Greece, was published by Louisiana State University Press in October of 2018 and will be available for purchase during the evening.
World Poetry Day internationally celebrates one of humanity’s most treasured forms of cultural and linguistic expression and identity. Practiced throughout history – in every culture and on every continent – poetry speaks to our common humanity and our shared values, transforming the simplest of poems into a powerful catalyst for dialogue and peace.
