Reginald Gibbons Poetry Reading at Printer’s Row Lit FestJune 12th, 2010
Title: Reginald Gibbons Poetry Reading at Printer’s Row Lit Fest
Location: Polk and Clark Streets, Arts & Poetry Stage
Description: Gibbons is the author of more than half a dozen collections of poetry, including Sparrow: New and Selected Poems (1997), winner of the Balcones Poetry Prize, and Creatures of a Day (2008), finalist for the National Book Award. In a 2008 interview, Gibbons describes Creatures of a Day as “a book about chance encounters, the testing of one’s sense of the world that is produced by encounters with other people,” a depiction that speaks to one of Gibbons’s major concerns, that of poetry’s role in the lives of others.
