Columbia To Host Richard Howard Tribute March 31st

<<< Columbia University will be holding a memorial for Richard Howard, the greatly beloved poet, teacher, editor, and mentor, and  on March 31, 2023, at Miller Theatre.  For those of you not familiar with the campus, the entrance to the auditorium is to the left of the gate to the university on Broadway at 116th St in New York City.  Colleagues and former students will read from Richard's writings.  The event starts at 7 pm, with a reception afterwards in Pulitzer Hall across College Walk from Dodge Hall.  I hope you can come.

Note: Miller Theatre is asking that people who want to attend make a reservation.  Here is the official announcement with a link for reserving:

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
