Michael Cunningham, Edward Hirsch –FREE! #EdwardHirsch, #MichaelCunningham #Philadelphia
Hello, writer friends! The podcast of Edward Hirsch’s talk at the Free Library of Philadelphia is below at the link. I was happy to introduce him when he visited the Library recently, and I am likewise excited to introduce Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham on May 22nd. The new novel tackles religion, drugs and politics and is called The Snow Queen. The event is free! Learn more at http://libwww.freelibrary.org/authorevents/index.cfm?ID=42446&type=2 –Kelly McQuain
Edward Hirsch on The Poet’s Glossary (podcast)
Congratulations, Suzanne Parker and David Groff! The Advocate, at this link, asked each nominated poet from this year’s Lambda Literary Awards to submit one from their collection. Read the poems at the link. We enjoyed having Suzanne and David read for us in December 2013, and celebrate this fine accomplishment. If you read the poems at the link, you’ll also find Brian Teare, a Temple prof who is also a nominee. We hope you enjoy these poems!
