2. Poet William Trowbridge will read from his work on Wednesday, March 2nd, at 7:30 in the Art Exhibit Room. Mr. Trowbridge is among our finest contemporary poets, and surely one of the most entertaining. He is the author of five full-length volumes of poetry, including THE COMPLETE BOOK OF KONG (2003), an entire collection centered on King Kong, and, most recently, SHIP OF FOOL. Copies of both books are in the Bookshop, and all five of his books are on display, along with handouts, at the Library.

About SHIP OF FOOL, poet Charles Harper Webb wrote: “Already known as one of America’s best and wittiest poets, William Trowbridge has, in SHIP OF FOOL, found the perfect vessel to convey his vision: comic, tender, wry, compassionate, full of insight and rueful understanding of what it means to carry on, cream pies in the face, pants falling down as the Green Weenie rampages through our foolish, beautiful lives.”

A Distinguished Emeritus Professor and former Editor of THE LAUREL REVIEW, Mr. Trowbridge has been published in innumerable journals, anthologies, and textbooks, and has won numerous awards. He lists as one of his hobbies, “motorcycling on his Triumph Sprint 995 S/T.” For much more information, including videos of Mr. Trowbridge reading, go to his website: http://mockingbird.creighton.edu/ncw/trowbrid.htm.

Refreshments will be served.
