Tom Raworth (1938–2017): A Celebration of His Life and Work

April 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Join us as we remember poet and friend Tom Raworth, with readings and tributes, at UC Berkeley’s Maud Fife Room in Wheeler Hall. Miles Champion, poet and editor of Raworth’s As When: A Selection (Carcanet, 2015) will be flying in from New York City, and other poet and artist friends from nearer by and far-flung places will be present, the latter via audio recording or written memories and tributes.

Co-sponsored by The Poetry Center and UC Berkeley Department of English, this event is free and open to the public.
