Love & Other Strangers at ASA College


Samboudiang Faye of Senegal

Much thanks to all the readers, writers and listeners who gathered to share an evening of poetry in NYC at Herald Square, I SPEAK MY TRUTH. The evening included Poet of My People, poems read by students in their own mother tongue, as well as original poetic monologues by English Comp students at ASA College.

On Thursday 9/8 from 3 to 5, we will again come together to read both poems and poetic passages based on the theme Love and Other Strangers. (Feel free to stop in just to read as many of you are between classes.)

If you’d like to join us, please be sure to reserve your place by commenting below. Let us know if you will be stopping by to listen or read.  See you there!

    Hi Faduma,

    I am so happy you will again be reading with us! Here’s an idea– how do you feel about your country, your hometown? Do you ever miss Africa while you are here in NYC?

    Why not write a love letter to Africa, tell all you love about the mountains, the fields, the food, the people, the sky!
