Watermark Hosts Kaveh Akbar

February 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Watermark Books & Café will be hosting the award-winning and phenomenal poet Kaveh Akbar for his autobiographical narrative Martyr! on Thursday, February 8th at 6 pm. Kaveh Akbar is known for his award-winning poetry collections: Calling a Wolf a Wolf, Pilgram Bell, and Portrait of the Alcoholic. He will be at Watermark to discuss his first novel Martyr! which follows Cyrus Shams on a journey of introspection and discovery. Cyrus is a drunk, addict, and poet. His obsession with Martyrs and dealing with the death of his mother drives him to examine the mysteries of his past. Marty! is a paean to show we spend our lives seeking meaning – in faith, art, ourselves, and others. Kaveh will be here to discuss his book, do a Q&A, and do a book signing. We hope to see you there!
