Join Poet Samuel Hazo for readings from his upcoming collection of poetry: When Not Yet Is Now. In all his work, Hazo finds the quiet nobility in the quotidian. He speaks with subtlety and humor about the stuff of ordinary life and inevitable loss.
Samuel Hazo has won acclaim for his novels, plays, essays, and memoirs, but he is best known for his poetry. This is his thirtieth collection of poems. Hazo served as Pennsylvania's Poet Laureate from 1993 to 2003. He has won many awards and holds twelve honorary doctorates. Poet Dana Gioia notes that he "has been a constant and positive presence in the American poetry world for over half a century."
