Kerry Shawn Keys, a Pennsylvania native now living
in Lithuania, will be featured performer at the Crimson
Frog’s Poetry Thursdays, on August 23. Keys, a
Harrisburg native, now lives in Vilnius, where
he taught translation theory and creative composition
from 1998 to 2000 as a Fulbright lecturer at Vilnius

He’s currently engaged as a poet, editor, translator,
and cultural liaison. Keys has over forty books to his
credit, including translations from Portuguese, Czech,
and Lithuanian, and his own poems rooted in the
Appalachia hill country, and in Brazil and India. The
poet received the Robert H. Winner Memorial Award
from the Poetry Society of America in 1992, and, in
2005, a National Endowment For The Arts Literature
Fellowship, and received the Translation Laureate
Award from the Lithuanian Writers Union in 2003.
Selected poems have appeared in Czech and Lithuanian.

His latest book of verse is Broken Circle, Yardbird
Books, Newark, DE, 2006. Keys will read from this
tome as well as from other works. The Poetry Thursdays
reading series, sponsored by the Almost Uptown Poetry
Cartel, has been a fixture in the East Coast poetry scene
for over ten years, long renowned for the quality of its
poets and the large crowds it continues to attract.

A 7pm open reading will precede the feature
presentation which begins at 8 o‘clock. Marty Esworthy
will host. The Crimson Frog, 1104 Carlisle Road, Camp
Hill, PA, is located in the Cedar Cliff Mall. For
supplementary information: 717.761.4721.
