Renowned Poet Pinsky Will Land at Gu, Sfcc


Lamberson, Carolyn, The Spokesman-Review (Spokane, WA)


When it comes to poets, Robert Pinsky might be the closest thing to a rock star.

Three terms as U.S. poet laureate, from 1997-2000. Founder of the Favorite Poem Project, which allowed thousands of Americans from all walks of life to share their favorite works of poetry. Creator of a best-selling translation of Dante's "Inferno." Winner of multiple awards and a Pulitzer nominee. Poetry editor for the online magazine Slate.

He's written poetry, prose, essays and the libretto for an opera.

Oh, yeah. He's even appeared on an episode of "The Simpsons."

Guess what, Spokane. Robert Pinksy is coming to a college campus near you. Two of them, in fact.

Pinsky will talk at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Gonzaga University's Cataldo Globe Room as part of the college's Visiting Writers Series.

Upping the "coolness" quotient? His reading will be accompanied by a jazz quartet of GU students - Jordan Gorenberg on piano, Kit Wendtland on bass, Adam Gallion on drums, and Daniel Shortt on guitar. Earlier in the day, Pinsky will participate in a question- and-answer session at 1:30 p.m. the Foley Teleconference Room. Both events are free and open to the public.

The next day, he'll be at Spokane Falls Community College reading his works in the Sn-w'ey'-mn Auditorium (aka Building 24, Room 110), beginning at 11:30 a.m. This talk also is free and open to the public.
