An Evening With Gary Snyder

Thursday, November 19

Chapman (Bldg. 3, 2nd Floor)
Tickets $15

The winner of both a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and the American Book Award, Gary Snyder has been described as the “poet laureate of Deep Ecology”. Snyder began his career in the 1950s as a noted member of the “Beat Generation,” though he has since explored a wide range of social and spiritual matters in both poetry and prose. His first book, Riprap, has become a classic in American poetry, and he’s gone on to publish more than a dozen collections of poetry and prose. In Snyder’s latest collection, This Present Moment, (Counterpoint; $22.00), he ranges over the planet in a series of poems that serve as a map of the poet’s eighth decade as he presents some of the most beautiful domestic poems of his great career.
