9/17/08: Poet Paul Muldoon

Salt Lake City, UT – The Irish-born Paul Muldoon has been called "one of the five or so best poets alive." He's won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, chairs the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton and is Poetry Editor for The New Yorker Magazine. But before you settle on an image of the poet and professor, you should also note that he owns an arsenal of electric guitars and is in a garage band called "Rackett." Muldoon is in Salt Lake City and joins Doug to talk about great poets, his own poetry, and rock-n-roll.

    Tuesday at 7:00 p.m., Paul Muldoon will give a reading at Westminster College as part of their Anne Newman Sutton Weeks Poetry Series. The event is free, and will be held at the Vieve Gore Concert Hall on the Westminster campus. For more information, call 832-2376 or click here
