Robert Hass, the 2010 Lamont Poet, will come to Phillips Exeter on November 4th for a free and open to the public reading at 7:30pm in the Assembly Hall. Hass, who was the 1995-1997 U.S. Poet Laureate, as well as a National Book Award winner and recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, is known for much more than just his poetry. Hass has also been a crusader for American literacy as well as a champion of environmental causes, which won him the 1997 Educator of the Year by the North American Association on Environmental Education.
The Library of Congress offers an online resource guide to Hass, where you can find links to more information about the poet, including audio and video excerpts.
