Michael Blumenthal for “Correcting the World, Poems Selected and New, 1983-2023”

January 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Come join poet Michael Blumenthal for a poetry reading and q&a.

Described by Nobel-Prize winner Seamus Heaney as “one of the natural poets of his generation,” and by Nobel Prize-winning poet Joseph Brodsky as “a highly attractive presence in contemporary American poetry,” Michael Blumenthal is the former Director of Harvard’s Creative Writing Program and, more recently, Copenhauer Visiting Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Immigration Clinic at the West Virginia University College of Law. His latest book, Don’t Die: Poems, 2012-2021, was published in 2021 and his
non-fiction book, “Because They Needed Me”: Rita Miljo and the Orphaned Baboons of South Africa, in 2016. He is the author of nine previous volumes of poetry, and a book of short stories, The Greatest Jewish-American Lover in Hungarian History, which was published in 2014, as well as the memoir All My Mothers and Fathers, the novel Weinstock Among the Dying (winner of the Ribelow Prize) and a collection of essays from Central Europe, When History Enters the House. He now divides his time between D.C. and the small Hungarian village of Hegymagas near the shores of Lake Balaton.

This is an in-person event.
