Jonathan Blunk & Anne Wright "James Wright: A Life in Poetry"

When: Thu., Feb. 1, 6-8 p.m. 2018

Biographer Jonathan Blunk will talk with James Wright's widow, Anne Wright, about his new authorized and sweeping biography of her late husband - one of America’s most complex, influential, and enduring poets. In the extraordinary generation of American poets who came of age in the middle of the twentieth century, James Wright (1927–1980) was frequently placed at the top of the list. With a fierce, single-minded devotion to his work, Wright escaped the steel town of his Depression-era childhood in the Ohio valley to become a revered professor of English literature and a Pulitzer Prize winner.
