Kenneth Koch

A legendary king of the word, Kenneth Koch has published over twenty books, most recently STRAITS and New Address. He was awarded the Bollingen Prize for Poetry in 1995, and in 1996 he received the Rebekah Johnson Bobbitt National Prize for Poetry awarded by the Library of Congress. He is also a pioneer in Poets Theater, and most of his work in that field has been
collected in The Gold Standard: A Book of Plays. Perhaps most famously, he has shown the way to bring poetry into the lives and work of ordinary people, including the very young and the aged, in several best-selling books, including Wishes, Lies, and Dreams and Rose, Where Did You Get That Red? Just when you think you know all about the "New York School of Poetry," along comes the Joker! Join us for this special evening.
