HIMALAYAN POET FEATURED IN DAYTONA BEACH

 

Yuyutsu RD Sharma will be the featured poet on Wednesday, June 22, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Wine-Me on Beach Street in Daytona Beach. Mr. Sharma, who lives in Kathmandu, Nepal, will read from his two newest books: Quaking Cantos: Nepal Earthquake Poems, and A Blizzard in My Bones: New York Poems (Nirala, 2016). He will also discuss the continuing tragedy of the earthquake that devastated Nepal a year ago.
The program is presented by Volusia County Poet Laureate Dr. David B. Axelrod. “Yuyustu’s work is of interest to more than poets. He speaks lovingly of his homeland, but he also describes all our lives.”  says Axelrod. “We who have moved from the north to Florida certainly know what it means to have ‘a blizzard in our bones.’”

 

In addition to teaching at Columbia University and just previously at New York University, Mr. Sharma is a recipient of a fellowship from The Rockefeller Foundation, author of nine poetry collections, and is a frequent performer and workshop teacher throughout the world.

 

A gifted translator, Yuyutsu’s book of Nepali translations entitled Roaring Recitals; Five Nepali Poets was nominated by the Library of Congress as Best Book of the Year from Asia under the program, “A World of Books 2001: International Perspectives.”  His own poetry has been translated into and published in seven languages.

 

Wine-Me is located at 204 South Beach Street and can be reached at 386-871-7769. For more information about Mr. Sharma and the program, email Dr. Axelrod, axelrod@poetrydoctor.org, or call 386-337-4567.
