Poet Patrick Lawler to Read From Work
A reading by poet Patrick Lawler, writer-in-residence at LeMoyne College, has been rescheduled for Monday, March 9, at 8 p.m., in Dwight Lounge, Bristol Center. The reading, which is free and open to the public, is part of the English and Creative Writing Spring 2015 Reading Series. Lawler’s appearance in February was postponed due to inclement weather.
Lawler teaches at SUNY ESF and has published six books of poetry including A Drowning Man is Never Tall Enough, Feeding The Fear Of The Earth, Underground and Child Sings in the Womb. In addition, he has two books of fiction: his novel Rescuers of Skydivers Search Among the Clouds and his collection of short stories The Meaning of If.
Lawler also writes for the stage and the screen and has had a number of his pieces performed or produced. Among his awards are two New York State Foundation for the Arts Fellowships, a Constance Saltonstall Grant, the CNY Book Award for Fiction, and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.
The event is sponsored by the Dean of Faculty and hosted by the English and Creative Writing Department.
