Author of A Speed Education in Human Being
Kentucky poet, Shayla Lawson, will read from her debut collection, “A Speed Education in Human Being.” Lawson is a student in the Creative Writing MFA program at Indiana University and teaches at the Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts. She also has a degree in architecture. Fellow Affrilachian poet, Frank X Walker praises her poems as “built from organic steel and marble paper… a house—no, a village—that love built and decorated with keepsakes from all over the alphabet.”
