First Wednesday Formal presents Willis Barnstone
First Wednesday Formal welcomes four-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Willis Barnstone, to read original poems and translations. Gerald Stern said, “Willis Barnstone has been appointed a special angel to bring ‘the other’ to our attention, to show how it is done.” Jorge Luis Borges said, “four of the best things in America are Walt Whitman’s Leaves, Herman Melville’s Whales and the sonnets of Barnstone’s The Secret Reader: 501 Sonnets, and my daily corn flakes–that rough poetry of morning.”
