Aging and the Arts Poetry Circle: John Murillo


  • -

This conversation will take place in the Dorothy Rubel Room at the University of Arizona Poetry Center or in favorable weather conditions in the immediately adjacent breezeway. 

Join us for monthly poetry discussions, led by docents from the Poetry Center. The event is free, and no preparation or knowledge of poetry is necessary to participate.  A reading packet will be shared.  For anyone who enjoys poetry or learning more about poets in a conversational setting, this informal gathering includes many opportunities to contribute to the conversation and ask questions. It is also a great way to meet people in the community who have similar interests. The discussion will feature the work of poet John Murillo. 

John Murillo is the author of the poetry collections "Up Jump the Boogie," finalist for both the Kate Tufts Discovery Award and the Pen Open Book Award, and "Kontemporary Amerikan Poetry," winner of the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award and the Poetry Society of Virginia's North American Book Award, and finalist for the PEN/Voelcker Award for Poetry and the NAACP Image Award.
