Nazim Hikmet Poetry Festival 

When: Sun., April 26, 1-7 p.m. 2015
Price: free




Low-key and friendly, that's the Nazim Hikmet Poetry Festival, which celebrates its seventh year this week. The annual gathering always feels positive and generous—it's about hanging out with a good meal and drink, talking about poetry and books. Named after a renowned Turkish poet and activist, the festival celebrates a different poet each year, focusing on Russian Anna Akhmatova this time around. UNC-Chapel Hill professors speak about her life and poetry, and pianist Anatoly Larkin performs in her honor. Poet Betty Adcock and 2014 North Carolina Poetry Society awardee Catherine Carter share their work, along with readings by several winners of its annual poetry contest, which include North Carolinians Leila Chatti, Mimi Herman, Jane K. Andrews and Mary E. Parker. 16 p.m., free, 119 Ambassador Loop, Cary, 919-460-4963, —Chris Vitiello
