Alan Shapiro Reading

9/26/17, 7:00 PM

About this event

Shapiro is the author of over 13 poetry volumes, including Life Pig (2016), Reel to Reel, a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize, and Night of the Republic (2012). He has also published two memoirs and the 2012 novel Broadway Baby.

"Shapiro is a master of the middle tone (as well as most of the formal techniques in poetry’s capacious toolbox)," notes David Orr in The New York Times of Reel to Reel, "and he probes the deeper places of the self with a skilled psychologist’s gentle persistence. A delicately disquieting collection."

Free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations necessary.

Co-sponsored by the Edelstein-Keller Visiting Writer Series, the Creative Writing Program, the Department of English, and the Weisman Art Museum.
