The Noted Poet Ron Silliman Will Appear in Tulsa Soon

Apr 16, 2019

Our guest is the well-regarded Pennsylvania-based poet, Ron Silliman, who has written and edited over 30 books, and who is seen as one of the founders of the so-called Language Poetry movement in American literature. A 2003 Literary Fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts, Silliman also received the Levinson Prize from the Poetry Foundation in 2010 (among many other honors). He'll be reading from and talking about his work tonight (the 11th) as part of the 2nd Annual TulsaLitFest. The event begins at 5pm at Living Arts of Tulsa and is hosted by Prof. Grant Jenkins of the TU English Dept.
