The USC College holds a tribute to its own Carol Muske-Dukes, poet laureate of California.
Poet Robert Pinsky joins the USC College’s Carol Muske-Dukes (English) in a reading and celebration of the vast diversity of California in language, images and objects, as The College Commons concludes its year of “mapping the world.”
We return to the Natural History Museum to add the rich language of poetry to its other dazzling riches, as these brilliant writers open up the world of the West, from migration to the millennium and beyond — the fantasy of Hollywood, the lure of the endless horizon, and the promise of (literary) transformation.
