Join the library for a five week program featuring five of our most famous modern American poets. "Modern American Poets: Voices and Visions" includes readings, discussion as well as showing of videos about each of the poets. Moderated by USC English professor Dr. Bill Funderburk, each weekly session features a different poet.
