Help us celebrate poet and teacher Paul Mariani with an evening of poetry, art, and music. Friends and colleagues will be reading poems, both their own and of Mr. Mariani’s. Stephen Schoenberg will be playing music, and there will be an exhibit of wood engravings by artist Barry Moser, with whom Mariani collaborated on several books.
The author of seven poetry collections and numerous books of prose including biographies of William Carlos Williams, Wallace Stevens, and Hart Crane, Paul Mariani taught at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and Boston College where he currently holds a Chair in poetry.
Join Jarrett J. Krosoczka as he reads from his graphic memoir—HEY, KIDDO. After the reading, Jarret will be joined on stage by National Book Award-winning author Jeanne Birdsall to discuss writing, children’s literature, and the saving power of creativity.
