Dove Tale

When: Thu., Oct. 16 2014

One of the best known poets in the country, Akron native Rita Dove has written extensively about her Northeast Ohio roots. Over the course of a lengthy career, she’s published nine collections of poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Thomas and Beulah, a collection of poems about her maternal grandparents. The former U.S. Poet Laureate, Dove is currently a Commonwealth professor of English at the University of Virginia.
