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.
