Afaa Michael Weaver’s poetry collections include Water Song, The Ten Lights of God, The Government of Nature, and City of Eternal Spring. His honors include a Fulbright Scholar Award to Taiwan, fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Pew Foundation, and the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award. He was the first “elder” of the Cave Canem organization and was given the name “Afaa,” which means “oracle,” by Nigerian playwright Tess Onwueme. A lifelong student of Chinese culture and language, Weaver received the Gold Friendship Medal in 2005 from the Chinese Writers Association for his work with Chinese poets.
 
The reading is free and open to the public and will be followed by a light reception.
