The Life of a Poet is a series of in-depth discussions, followed by receptions and book signings, with some of the country’s most important poets moderated by Ron Charles, The Washington Post Editor of Book World, co-sponsored by the Library of Congress and The Washington Post. Made possible through support of National Capital Bank.
Widely acclaimed by both critics and readers as one of the best poets working today, Frank Bidart is the author of numerous collections of poetry, including most recently "Metaphysical Dog," which won the 2013 National Book Critics Circle Award and was a finalist for the National Book Award. There will be a free reception and refreshments with Bidart following the discussion.
