by

comment

In his 2007 book Broken Hallelujahs, Case Western Reserve University poetry professor Sean Thomas Dougherty examines his place in the world. He takes a trip to Budapest to walk the streets his great-grandmother walked, and makes allusions to cultural icons of the 20th century, including Jackson Pollock and Biggie Smalls. In 2008’s To See the Earth, John Carroll University professor Philip Metres “navigates the increasingly turbulent waters of a globalized world from Moscow to Chicago, from Philadelphia to Ramallah.” Dougherty and Metres read at the Poetry Back in the Woods series at 7 p.m. at the Shaker Heights Public Library Bertram Woods Branch (20600 Fayette Rd., Shaker Hts., 216.991.2421). Admission is free. — Michael Gill
