Poetry off the Shelf: Lucille Clifton Tribute & Book Launch

September 20, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 12:00 am

Free

“One always feels the looming humaneness around Lucille Clifton’s poems,” observed the judges in awarding her the 2007 Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize. Clifton once told an interviewer that “writing is a way of continuing to hope…a way of remembering I am not alone.” Poets Michael S. Glaser, Li-Young Lee, Elise Paschen, Kevin Young, and other special guests offer tributes and read favorite works to celebrate The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton 1965-2010.

A reception will follow.

Doors open 30 minutes before program start time; program will last approximately one hour.
