A Conversation With Poet Kevin Young
A Conversation With Poet Kevin YoungA Geisel Library 50th Anniversary Signature Event: A Conversation With Kevin Young

Kevin Young, whom The Washington Post calls â€"one of the most important poets of his generation,” is a poet, essayist, editor, and curator. He is the director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, recently named a National Historic Landmark, and poetry editor of The New Yorker, where he hosts the poetry podcast.

Young is the author of 13 books of poetry and prose, most recently "Brown" (2018). He has won numerous awards for his poetry, including the Lenore Marshall Prize for Poetry from the Academy of American Poets for "Book of Hours"; an American Book Award for "Ardency: A Chronicle of the Amistad Rebels"; the Paterson Poetry Prize for "Jelly Roll: a blues"; and the National Poetry Series and the Zacharis First Book Award for "Most Way Home." His books have been finalists for the National Book Award, the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, and Los Angeles Times Book Prize.

Young’s nonfiction work has also received critical acclaim. His two nonfiction books, "The Grey Album: On the Blackness of Blackness" and "Bunk: The Rise of Hoaxes, Humbug, Plagiarists, Phonies, Post-Facts, and Fake News" were both named a New York Times Notable Book and were finalists for the National Book Critics Circle Award. His newest book, "African American Poetry: 250 Years of Struggle and Song," is scheduled to be released in September 2020.
