The King's English Bookshop with the Guest Writers Series presents
An Evening with Pulitzer Prize–winner Mark Strand
Thursday, September 27, 7 p.m.
Strand is recognized as one of the premier contemporary American poets. He is the author of twelve earlier books of poems. He is also the author of a book of stories, three volumes of translations, a number of anthologies (most recently 100 Great Poems of the Twentieth Century), and monographs on the artists William Bailey and Edward Hopper. Named the U.S. Poet Laureate in 1990, Strand’s career has spanned nearly four decades, and he has won numerous accolades from critics and a loyal following among readers. In 1999 he was awarded the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for his collection Blizzard of One.
This event is presented with the Guest Writers Series (GWS) co-sponsored by The Salt Lake City Arts Council and the University of Utah Department of English and Creative Writing Program.
