Threepenny Review Thirtieth Anniversary Reading

120coverOn Tuesday, March 16th, at 7:00 PM, the Creative Writing Program will host the Threepenny Review’s Thirtieth Anniversary Reading, featuring poets Frank Bidart, Louise Glück, Jill McDonough, and Robert Pinsky, introduced by Wendy Lesser, founding editor of the Threepenny Review and author of eight books, most recently Room for Doubt. The five eminent, much-loved, and multiple-prizewinning poets who will read at this event are all from the Boston area, and are all closely associated with the Threepenny Review. Frank Bidart and Louise Glück are both Consulting Editors to the magazine, and those two plus Robert Pinsky have been appearing in its pages since the early 1980s; David Ferry joined Threepenny in 1994, and Jill McDonough, the relative newcomer, in 2004. The reading, which will be held at the Boston University School of Management Auditorium, 595 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, is free and open to the public.
