Poet, activist coming to Forum

Laurinburg, N.C. - Coach, community activist, former basketball player and St. Andrews graduate Gilbert Abraham takes center stage on Thursday at the Writers’ Forum.

Free and open to the public, the Forum begins at 8 p.m. in Orange Main Lounge. Abraham received the inaugural Gilbert-Chappell Award for the Central Region of North Carolina in 2004 while still a student at St. Andrews. His collection of poetry, Blood and Dreams, was published by St. Andrews Press in 2006.

"It was the most calming and humbling thing to know that I was thought well enough of that I would be blessed with the privilege to have me work published by my Alma Mater," Abraham said. "I was completely humbled and filled with the joy of a child."

Abraham is the lead trainer and founder of Akin Athletics, a basketball specific training program. He holds a degree in Politics and Creative Writing from St. Andrews and the M.P.A. from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

For more information about the Writers' Forum, creative writing or the St. Andrews Press, call 910-277-5310 or email press@sapc.edu.
