Poetry Reading by Mary Jo Salter

September 25, 2013 - 8:00 pm

Reviewing Mary Jo Salter’s "A Phone Call to the Future: New & Selected Poems" for The New York Times Book Review, James Longenbach wrote, “Only a few poets transcend the history of taste to participate in the history of art-- and only in a handful of poems. Salter has been struck by lightning more than once.” Salter’s brand-new poetry collection, "Nothing By Design," is her seventh. She is also the author of a children's book, "The Moon Comes Home," and a co-editor of "The Norton Anthology of Poetry." She teaches at Johns Hopkins University and lives in Baltimore.
