Join CAA Arts Access for a reading and conversation with three Columbia alumni poets spanning more than thirty years and two generations. Harry Bauld ’77CC, a student of David Shapiro and the late Kenneth Koch, was twice first team All-Ivy shortstop. Selected by Matthew Dickman for inclusion in Best New Poets 2012 (University of Virginia Press), he will read from his new book, The Uncorrected Eye, evocations of a vision that "brims, marbles, quivers / over its boundaries, wells” in what Fred Marchant calls "jazz-like improvisations and whip-like turns" of "beautifully crafted poems" in which "we feel we are meeting [the world] for the first time.”
Elizabeth Straus ’09CC, '14SOA was a finalist in Narrative’s Seventh Annual Poetry Contest. She earned both her BA and her MFA from Columbia, where she received the Karen Osney Brownstein Writing Prize. She lives in Brooklyn.
