Sep 1, 2011 | General News, Liberal Arts

Three poems written by a Louisiana Tech English instructor have been published in the fall 2011 issue of Crab Orchard Review, a Southern Illinois University literary publication. Genaro Ky Ly Smith’s “Vacation,” “The Starving City” and “Providence” center around his Vietnamese grandfather’s struggles during the Communist takeover after the fall of Saigon and can be read in the fall issue of Crab Orchard Review. Additionally, in May, Smith’s “Night: Lessons in Translations” from his novel, The Land South of the Clouds, was published in the spring 2011 issue of Northridge Review. Another chapter from the same book, “Tuesday: Kill the Children” will also be in the Asian American Literary Review this fall quarter.
