April 9, 2013 at 1:30 pm in the Watkinson
The Watkinson is holding a poetry reading and exhibition opening this Tuesday, April 9, featuring the works and life of Hyam Plutzik, Trinity alumnus, poet and Professor of English at the University of Rochester.
Come explore Plutzik’s life and works with Trinity faculty, students, and Connecticut Poet Laureate Dick Allen in the Watkinson! In addition to readings of Plutzik’s works by Trinity’s award-winning poet Ciaran Berry and Artist-in-Residence Clare Rossini, Trinity students will also read selections from their own works of poetry.
I once looked at poetry as little more than beautiful language. Later it was a way of communicating the nuances of the world. More recently I have begun to look at poetry as the great synthesizer, the humanizer of knowledge –Hyam Plutzik
