Join us as we celebrate the life, legacy, and last collection of acclaimed poet Stanley Plumly. Hosted by Kevin Craft, and with readings and tributes by Michael Collier, Linda Bierds, David Biespiel, and Rick Barot.
About Middle Distance:
After a diagnosis of cancer, Stanley Plumly found himself in the middle distance—looking back at his childhood and a rich lifetime of family and friends, while gazing into a future shaped by the press of mortality. In Middle Distance, his final collection, he pushes onward into new territory with extended hybrid forms and revelatory prose pieces. The result is the moving culmination of a long career, a work of fearless, transcendent poems that face down the impending eternal voyage.
