A Tribute to Poet Mary Oliver

Thursday, Apr 4, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Westport Center for Senior Activities and The Westport Library are partnering to honor the life and and work of beloved and highly acclaimed poet Mary Oliver, one of our country's most widely read and celebrated contemporary poets. She has received numerous awards including the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, as well as taught and held posts at various prestigious colleges and universities, over the lifetime of her long and accomplished literary career.

Her exquisitely crafted poetry, rooted in the beauty and mystery of the natural world, illuminates the interconnectedness of all living things, and in so doing, deeply touches her readers, many of whom do not consider themselves lovers of poetry.

This special evening will include insightful talks and inspired readings by local poets and teachers, featuring Professor Laurel Peterson, Poet Laureate of Norwalk.

Location:  Westport Center for Senior Activities, 21 Imperial Avenue
