A Night of Poetry with Mark Anthony Thomas
Tuesday, August 9
Kelly Strayhorn Theater | 5941 Penn Ave.
Mark Anthony Thomas built his early career as a writer and poet, authoring two books, “As I Look” and “The Poetic Repercussion” in Atlanta and serving as publisher of City Limits, an investigative journalism magazine in New York. Then it all stopped.
Now, nearly 15 years after his last featured performance, Mark will revisit his poetic past for a one-night only special birthday performance and taping of “Folded Whispers.” The event (and reception) will feature new poems, touching on topics of urbanism, identity, love, loss, mortality, and peace.
