Tom Clark: A Memorial Reading

Tom Clark, born in Chicago in 1941, emerged as a major figure in poetry in the early 1960s. He was prolific and much published throughout his life by Black Sparrow Press and numerous other small presses, served as poetry editor of the Paris Review from 1963-1973, and was a key figure on the faculty of the poetics program at New College of California from 1987 to 2008. Tom passed away in August 2018. Please join us at 1pm on Sunday June 30 for a reading in his honor by a number of his close friends and peers.
