CHARLES SIMICPulitzer Prize-winning poet Charles Simic will read from his work on Thursday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Ely Room of the Wyndham Alumnae House at Bryn Mawr College.

The reading is part of Bryn Mawr College’s Creative Writing Program Reading Series. All readings in the series are free and open to the public.

Simic’s epigrammatic, dreamlike and mordantly humorous poems have made him one of this country’s most distinctive lyric voices. Among his eighteen books of poems are That Little Something, My Noiseless Entourage, and The World Doesn’t End: Prose Poems, for which he received the Pulitzer Prize. He has also published prose books, including The Renegade: Writings on Poetry and a Few Other Things, Memory Piano, Metaphysician in the Dark, and A Fly In My Soup. He has served as Poet Laureate of the United States and has received two PEN translation awards and a MacArthur Fellowship.

This reading has been made possible with the support of the Jane Flanders Fund and the Marianne Moore Fund for the Study of Poetry.
