Poetry Reading: J. D. McClatchy

April 2, 2014 - 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm (already occurred)
Amherst Books, (8 Main Street)

J. D. McClatchy is the author of eight collections of poetry, the most recent being "Plundered Hearts: New and Selected Poems." As the Los Angeles Times puts it: “It’s hard to imagine another poet capable of being wry and tender; unpredictable and measured, original and traditional–– within the body of a single poem.” McClatchy has also written three books of essays, as well as libretti for many contemporary composers, and his operas have played in such houses as the Metropolitan Opera and La Scala. He teaches at Yale, where he also serves as editor of The Yale Review.
