Douglas Kearney @ Russell House

Russell House ’28 (that’s 1828) is excited to swallow acclaimed poet Douglas Kearney whole tomorrow night. It’s equally excited for the baked brie:

Acclaimed poet, Douglas Kearney, will read from his recent work on Wednesday, October 24th, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. in Wesleyan University’s Russell House.

Douglas Kearney is a celebrated and decorated poet/performer/librettist/educator. Of Kearney it has been said, “He has the visual sense of a graphic artist and the aesthetic consciousness of a painter. He has the ear of a musician. He has the mind of an architect who is also a linguist. He has the spirit of a poet, and the tongue of a storyteller. He has created poetry of the kind I have never, ever seen before, and yet, the work is immediately a delight, sometimes a privilege to be immersed in it.” Don’t miss him!

A reception with delicious pastries, fruit, and freshly baked brie will follow…be sure not to miss those either!

Date: Wednesday, October 24
Time: 8 pm
Place: Russell House
Cost: Free
