The Innovative Vision of Poet Dana Gioia: American Poetry and Public Life

October 23 @ 4:00 pm

Free

Internationally acclaimed poet and literature professor Dana Gioia has championed poetry throughout his career. During his recent term as California Poet Laureate, he brought his own poetry and the work of established and emerging poets to every county in the state. He will read from and illuminate his award-winning poetry and discuss how community engagement in poetry and all the arts fosters a vibrant public sphere. Gioia holds the Judge Widney Chair of Poetry and Public Culture at the University of Southern California.

The Cal Lutheran Choir, conducted by Wyant Morton, will perform a musical setting of Gioia’s poem “Prayer” composed by Morten Lauridsen.

Admission is free. Sponsored by the English Department and the Artists and Speakers Committee. For more information, contact Jim Bond at 805-493-3244 or jabond@CalLutheran.edu.
