December 13, 2019:
The Merwin Conservancy presents Robert Haas & Forest Gander in the Green Room.
Renowned poets and translators Robert Hass and Forrest Gander take the stage together for an evening immersed in the power of language as part of the Merwin Conservancy’s Green Room arts and ecology salon Memorial Series, in honor of the organization’s founder, the late W.S. Merwin. Robert Hass, a poet, essayist, and translator, won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 2007, served as the U.S. Poet Laureate from 1995-1997, and was the recipient of a MacArthur “genius” grant. Forrest Gander won the 2019 Pulitzer for poetry and has degrees in both geology and literature. The presentation will be followed by a book-signing at a courtyard reception with refreshments.
The Memorial Series of the Green Room is presented by Aqua Aston Hospitality and is made possible with the generous support of the Atherton Family Foundation and Casa deFlores. All profits from the event benefit the local nonprofit Merwin Conservancy.
Tickets: $25 & $10/special student price w/ID (plus applicable fees). All attendees are invited to stay for the post-event hosted reception included in the ticket price.
