Best-selling poet Rupi Kaur is going on tour this fall, and she’s stopping in Atlanta along the way.
The writer and illustrator, who is the author of the poetry collections “Milk and Honey” and “The Sun and Her Flowers,” is embarking upon a month-long trek through America to promote her work.
She will kick things off in New York on Sept. 26 and wrap up in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 30. Her Atlanta show will take place Oct. 24 at the Tabernacle. Ticket prices range from $30 to $162 and are on sale now.
Kaur rose to fame in 2014 when she began posting her writing and illustrations on Instagram. After amassing more than 1 million followers, she published her first book “Milk and Honey,” which included her drawings and tackled themes of abuse, femininity and love. The book remained on The New York Times best-sellers list for more than a year.
In 2017, she released her second book, “The Sun and Her Flowers.” It explored loss, trauma and migration and hit the top 10 of the Times’ best-sellers list within two weeks of publication.
She has since traveled the world, performing her poetry for a wide variety of audiences and appearing on several television programs. Her online following also has increased, with more than 3 million followers on Instagram.
“I feel like I get to be the woman of my dreams when I’m on stage,” she said during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in June. “This whole different person comes out, and it’s incredible.”
