Event Details

In Goodbye, Apostrophe, his first new collection in more than a decade, nationally recognized and prize-winning poet Peter Schmitt has assembled nearly 50 poems notable for their range and emotional power. From the hard lessons of childhood to the loss of parents, these poems confront the challenging issues of our time — including race, religion, abuse of varying kinds and reflexive political correctness.

Schmitt is the author of five previous collections of poems, including Renewing the Vows, and is the winner of the Lavan Award from the Academy of American Poets. He currently lives and teaches in Miami, Florida.
