misc_none 1:30 PM  -  2:30 PM A POETRY READING WITH DR. SAM HAZO Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Register online to attend or call 724.941.9430 #1. 

Dr Samuel Hazo will share a reading with us of poems from his most recent book, They Rule the World. Dr. Hazo explains, "Poetry and memorability go hand in hand.  Unlike most of what we hear and read every day, much of which is immediately forgotten, poetry is what we cannot forget even if we try.  This is why all attempts to belittle or, in some countries, banish poets and poetry are doomed to fail.  Poetry will survive simply because there is no substitute for it."

Dr. Hazo is the author of poetry, fiction, essays and four plays. In 1993, Governor Robert Casey named Dr. Hazo Pennsylvania’s first State Poet Laureate and he held this honor until 2003. Throughout his writing career he has explored themes of morality, love, passion, art, courage and grace in a style that is unmistakably his own. In 1972, his book Once for the Last Bandit was a finalist for the National Book Award. In addition to founding the International Poetry Forum he is also the McAnulty Distinguished Professor of English Emeritus at Duquesne University.
