Celebrated Poet To Take Audience on Compelling Journey 

When: Tue., March 26, 6:30 p.m. 2013
Phone: 704-687-0082
Price: Free
One of UNC Charlotte’s most celebrated poets, Tanure Ojaide, author of “The Beauty I Have Seen,” will present a talk in the Dale Halton Reading Room of Atkins Library. A reception will follow. Parking tokens will be provided. Ojaide turns to his life’s experiences to create phases of the poetic journey, ranging from the poet — or minstrel — as a public figure, a traveller and observer of humanity, to one grounded in the landscape and fate of his native Nigeria. His voice is passionate and restrained, relaxed and poignant, blending African oral traditions with modern techniques.
