U.S. Poet Laureate Philip Levine to Speak to Nation’s High School Students on Friday, May 4, 2012

Philip Levine, current U.S. Poet Laureate and Consultant in Poetry at the Library of Congress (and one of my favorite living American poets since I randomly discovered his work while a high school student), will speak with high school students via a nationwide video conference to be held  on Friday, May 4, 2012 at 3 PM Eastern Time (1 PM Mountain Time).  Locally, video connection to the conference will be provided by UEN at the Whitmore Branch of the Salt Lake County Library.  The conference can also be viewed via a live stream by following this link at the time of the conference.

Levine will read and discuss three of his poems, two of which can be accessed below for students and educators to read (and listen to) before the conference:
