Poet George Wallace, author of the Poppin’ Johnny (TRP, 2009) and the upcoming English/Greek collection EOS: Abductor of Men (TRP, 2012) is featured in The New York Times March 30 edition. Times writer Karin Lipson ventured out to the Conklin Barn in Huntington, where Wallace’s monthly “Poetry Café” reading series has been staged for years. The article notes that Wallace, currently writer-in-residence for the Walt Whitman Birthplace State Historic site, will commemorate Nation Poetry Month on April 11 at the Huntington Public Library with at reading of works by Whitman, Carl Sandburg and Maya Angelou. Hopefully one or two of Wallace’s own pieces will be read as well!
