Congratulations Tim Seibles!

Prince Books sends a well deserved Congratulations to Norfolks very own Tim Seibles for being named Finalist for the National Book Award!

 

 He is being considered for the National Book Award for his book of Poetry Fast Animal . Tim Seibles is one of America's foremost African-American poets who threads the journey from youthful innocence to the whittled-hard awareness of adulthood. Along the way it immerses the reader in palpable moments -- the importance of remembering, the complexity of race, and the meaning of true wakefulness. 

 

 

 

 

Tim Seibles has published six books of poetry: Hammerlock, Ten Miles an Hour, Kerosene, Hurdy-Gurdy, Body Moves and Buffalo Head Solos. Seibles' poetry focuses on the alienation of non-whites in America. He examines a world that is dominated by an uneven control of power, and yet in his work, Seibles dares to hope in reconciliation, freedom, and connection. For his work he has received the following grants and awards: the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center fellowship, the National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, and an Open Voice Award from the National Writers' Voice Project. Seibles teaches with the MFA Creative Writing Program at Old Dominion University in Norfolk.
