Description

The Poetry Circle Presents

Gyasi Ross and Friends

Known as one of the best storytellers and one of the sharpest young intellectuals in this time, Ross is the author of two books, Don’t Know Much About Indians (but I wrote a book about us anyways) (2011) and How to Say I Love You in Indian (2014).

Gyasi Ross: “I come from a family of storytellers. My family tells long stories, drinking coffee and blowing smoke in your face. It just fit for me to tell stories, and then I started writing them.”

The opening activities for this event include spoken word by the First Wave poets of Univesity of Wisconsin and poets from the community. This event is brought to you by a partnership between the Wisconsin Book Fesitval and Madison College
