An Evening of Poetry

“A large, ironic Whitman of the industrial heartland... quintessentially urban.” The New York Times

Born in Detroit to Russian-Jewish immigrants, Philip Levine toiled away in auto factories in his youth and went on to become the 18th Poet Laureate of the United States and a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer. His early experiences provided the grist for “gritty, fiercely unpretentious free verse about American manliness, physical labor, simple pleasures and profound grief” (Publishers Weekly). Join us for a very special evening with this national treasure.

Books will be available for purchase and signing

Distinguished Visiting Fellow in the UCSB College of Creative Studies
