Former U.S. poet laureate to lecture at Whitman


WALLA WALLA — Mark Strand, former U.S. poet laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner, will give this year’s Walt Whitman Lecture at Whitman College on Thursday.

Part of the Visiting Writers Reading Series, the lecture, open to the community, will be at 7 p.m. in Maxey Auditorium.

Strand has authored dozens of books in all genres — poetry, nonfiction and fiction for both adults and children — as well as being a renowned essayist, translator, critic and editor.

His talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a book signing in the lobby.
