15th Annual Great Writers, Great Readings Series presents David Baker

David Baker is one of contemporary poetry’s most gifted lyric poets. In Swift: New and Selected Poems (forthcoming in April 2019), he gathers poems from eight collections, including 2015’s masterful Scavenger Loop, and the intimate travelogues of 2009’s Never-Ending Birds. Baker is also the author of six critical books, most recently Seek After: On Seven Modern Lyric Poets (2018). He holds the Thomas B. Fordham Chair of Creative Writing at Denison University, and is the poetry editor of the Kenyon Review. He has received fellowships and awards from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Poetry Society of America.

 

Co-sponsored by the Department of English and MFA in Creative Writing Program, in collaboration with the Hofstra Cultural Center.
