Poet and UAlbany professor Leonard Slade will host a poetry reading and celebration of two new books noon Saturday, April 14, at the University at Albany Alumni House, on the uptown campus.

Leonard A. Slade Jr. will read from his two recently-published collections, People of All Ages, published in December, 2017, and I, Too, Am America, published in March, 2018, a personal meditation on Black history and the many people, both well-known and unknown, who have helped to create this nation. In advance praise, major American poet Nikki Giovanni called it, “Clever! A well-executed book of poems.”

Please RSVP by Wednesday, April 4, by calling 518-442-4730 or email: blewis@albany.edu
