Hamilton College will celebrate the life and work of poet Agha Shahid Ali on Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m., in the Burke Library Commons.  One of Kashmir’s most celebrated poets, Shahid taught at Hamilton in the early 1990s. Burke Library has an extensive archive of his work in its Special Collections. The event will feature community poetry readings, reminiscences, music and birthday refreshments.

Shahid died in 2001, but his profound message continues to resonate today. This is the first in a series of events celebrating Ali. It is sponsored by Apple & Quill: Creative Arts at Burke, with support from Hamilton’s Digital Humanities Initiative.
