Cultural and Special Events committee presents poet Albert Goldbarth
Goldbarth, two-time winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, is the author of over 20 collections of poetry, including "Jan. 31," "Heaven and Earth: A Cosmology," "Saving Lives" and, most recently, "The Kitchen Sink: New and Selected Poems 1972-2007."
Hailed for his unconventional style and wit, The Georgia Review says Goldbarth "may just be the American poet of his generation." His other published works include a novel, "Pieces of Payne," and several collections of essays. Goldbarth is currently an Adele M. Davis Distinguished Professor of Humanities at Wichita State University.
