Robert Pinsky, former U.S. Poet Laureate from 1997-2000, will speak tonight at Gonzaga University. As Poet Laureate, Pinsky founded the Favorite Poem Project. The project allowed thousands of Americans of varying ages and backgrounds to share favorite poems. Read them here.

Pinsky’s work as a poet, essayist, literary critic and translator has earned praise for its wild musical energy and ambitious range. The esteemed poet will read from his latest volume of poetry Selected Poems and the acclaimed volume The Figure Wheel: New and Collected Poems.

Listen to the reading tonight at 7:30 pm in the Cataldo Globe Room. Pinsky will also read during the annual Wire Harp/Lit Live! on Feb. 29 at 11:30 am at Spokane Falls Community College sn-w’ey’-mn auditorium.
