Book Culture, New York: A Reading With David Austell & Yuyutsu Sharma

Join us at Book Culture on 112th as David Austell & Yuyutsu Sharma read from their latest poetry books, The Tin ManGaruda & New Poems of Astral PlanesQuaking Cantos: Nepal Earthquake PoemsA Blizzard in My Bones: New York Poems on Friday, October 26th at 7pm.

Quaking Cantos is the creative response of a world-renowned Himalayan poet to the earthquakes that shook Nepal in 2015, killing thousands and leaving more than a million people homeless, vulnerable to the ravages of the harsh Himalayan environment. In the aftermath of the earthquakes, his North and Central American reading tours suspended, Yuyutsu returns to Nepal to bear witness to the devastation the “cosmic commotion” has caused in his own Himalayan home.

A Blizzard in my Bones: New York Poems is a brilliant and groundbreaking new work focusing on the “first city of the world” by the internationally acclaimed Himalayan poet, Yuyutsu Sharma. Reminiscent of F.G. Lorca, Allen Ginsberg, Frank O’ Hara and Carl Sandburg, the poems constitute Sharma’s reflections on what it means for a Himalayan poet to transform to a new creation, a New Yorker.


David B. Austell, Ph.D. is Associate Provost and Director of the International Students and Scholars Office at Columbia University in New York City where he is also an Associate Professor of International Education in Teachers College-Columbia University (adjunct). David has over thirty years of executive leadership experience in International Education, and is a frequent writer and presenter in his professional field. David has undergraduate and graduate degrees in English Literature from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he also completed his Ph.D. in Higher Education, focusing on International Education. His doctoral dissertation, The Birds in the Rich Forest, concerned Chinese students in the United States during the Student Democracy Movement. David was a Fulbright Fellow in Japan and Korea in 1992. He is also a poet, and The Tin Man is his third book.

Yuyutsu Sharma is a recipient of fellowships and grants from The Rockefeller Foundation, Ireland Literature Exchange, Trubar Foundation, Slovenia, The Institute for the Translation of Hebrew Literature and The Foundation for the Production and Translation of Dutch Literature, Yuyutsu RD Sharma is a distinguished poet and translator. He has  published nine poetry collections including, A Blizzard in my Bones: New York Poems (Nirala, 2016), Quaking Cantos: Nepal Earthquake Poems, (Nirala, 2016),  Milarepa’s Bones, 33 New Poems, (Nirala, 2012),  Nepal Trilogy, Photographs and Poetry on Annapurna, Everest, Helambu & Langtang (www.Nepal-Trilogy.de, Epsilonmedia, Karlsruhe, 2010), a 900-page book with renowned German photographer, Andreas Stimm, Space Cake, Amsterdam, & Other Poems from Europe and America, (2009, Indian reprint 2014) and Annapurna Poems, 2008, Reprint, 2012).

Nirala Launches American Poet Diane Frank’s photography book on Nepal–Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place : A Journey through the Nepal Himalayas to Celebrate Poetry Month, 2018

Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place: A Journey through the Nepal Himalayas
Photographs and Text by Diane Frank
ISBN 81-8250-095-8 2018 Hard Cover pp 144

Walk with Diane Frank, poet, and novelist, on a 400-mile trek in the Nepal Himalayas. With photographs and her beautifully written narrative, she will take you to many Sacred Mountain Places. You will trek on mountain trails around Annapurna, with an ascent of 17,800 feet to Thorong La, and anoint your spirit in the sacred fountains of Muktinath. You will climb the Everest trail with astounding views of the mountains and go on pilgrimage to Buddhist temples and monasteries. The rushing water of sacred rivers will sing to your imagination. With each step of your journey, you will be transformed by the magic of the mountains.

“Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place captures the wide-eyed wonder of Diane Frank’s travels through Nepal, prior to the 1990 Democracy Revolution and the decades of upheaval that followed. She has composed a poetic homage to a place and culture that forever changed all who experienced it — and that still awakens newcomers to their inner journey.”

~ Jeff Greenwald, author of Shopping for Buddhas

Diane Frank’s Letters from a Sacred Mountain Place evokes the citadels of silence that define the essence of the Himalayas. The strength of the book rests in her ecstatic recollection of the minute details of the mountain world and her humble encounters with the beautiful people of the high Himalayas. The glory of idyllic life enjoyed during her treks in 1988 and 1989 has become a thing of the past, thanks to the merciless encroachment of the Western world and homegrown greed of senseless politicians in Nepal.

~ Yuyutsu Sharma, Himalayan Poet, & Author, Annapurna Poems and Quaking Cantos: Nepal Earthquake Poems

Dr . Rishikeshab Raj Regmi is a prominent Nepalese anthropologist.

The Dhimals : Miraculous Migrants of Himal captures the mechanism of an agrarian Nepalese ethnic group caught in the crossfire of tradition and modernization. Dr. Regmi, for the first time, attempts to analyze the society of the Dhimals in a purely anthropological perspective. Describing all around socio- cultural facets of the Dhimals society, Dr. Regmi endeavors to study and determine how certain demographic, ecological and social changes are interacting with the traditional setting in the Jhapa district of Eastern Nepal Terai to alter its basic social structure and cultural traits. Dr. Regmi adopts a systematic development approach and places emphasis on the relevance of economy, occupational variables to the social structure of the Dhimal families.

The book is an authentic account of the little known migrants of Himal who are attempting to adjust the pressures of modernization without letting their traditional value system collapse.

“The well-known Nepalese scholar and anthropologist, Dr. Rishikeshab Raj Regmi has vividly analyzed the entire socio-cultural structure of the fast changing society of Dhimals of the Nepal Terai . His study with an anthropological perspective widely covers the theme he has undertake for his scholarly pursuit and shows how custom and tradition influences behavior, economy, polity and how developing societies are adjusting themselves to the influence of modernization.”

Dr. Ishwar Baral Former Vice-Chancellor, Nepal Academy, Kathmandu
