Poet Joshua Kryah

AIR DATE: September 14, 2011

Joshua Kryah is a contemporary poet in Las Vegas.  But his poems "would be just as at home in the mouth of a monk in medieval France, a Brazilian missionary, the courtier to his beloved," noted one editor.  The Missouri-born poet draws inspiration from the ancient touchstones of literature: Dante, St. Augustine, and the Bible, among others.  Joshua Kryah talks about faith, language, and the struggle between the two.  Joshua Kryah reads on September 15 at 7 p.m. at UNLV's Greenspun Auditorium.
