Poet Sarah Kay to perform at TJC on April 28

New York poet Sarah Kay will perform at Tyler Junior College on Saturday, April 28, at 2 p.m. in Jenkins Hall Admiral Inman Room (1109) on the TJC main campus.

The event is free and open to the public. A book signing for her latest book, All Our Wild Wonder, will follow.
Sarah Kay has been performing her spoken word poetry since she was 14 years old and was a featured poet on HBO’s “Russell Simmons presents Def Poetry Jam” in 2006. That year she was also the youngest poet to compete in the National Poetry Slam. Since then, Sarah has shared her poetry in venues and classrooms around the world. She is perhaps best known for her 2011 TED talk, which garnered two standing ovations and has been seen over seven million times online.
