A Tribute to W.S. Merwin in the Green Room Featuring Poet, Edward Hirsch, & Special Guests

Friday, September 29, 2017; McCoy Studio Theater; 7:00

In celebration of his 90th birthday, the Merwin Conservancy presents an evening in tribute to U.S. Poet Laureate, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, translator, environmentalist, and 40-year Maui resident, W.S. Merwin, whose peerless literary gifts have inspired millions and have consistently broken new ground in the world of poetry. The evening will feature a tribute to Merwin and readings of his poetry, led by celebrated poet Edward Hirsch of the Guggenheim Foundation, and Merwin’s longtime editor, Michael Wiegers of Copper Canyon Press. Other special guests and appearances will be announced soon. The State of Hawaii will also be present, issuing a Gubernatorial Proclamation proclaiming September 30, 2017, as “W.S. Merwin Day” in Hawaii and presenting Merwin with a special Gubernatorial Commendation for his life-long achievements. The presentation will be followed by a courtyard reception with dessert, champagne, and live musical entertainment. This event is generously presented by FIM Group.
