Joyner Library and ECU’s Contemporary Writers Series present poet Dave Smith of Johns Hopkins University speaking at the Robert Penn Warren Exhibit.

RPW_screenDave Smith is currently the Elliott Coleman Professor of Poetry at Johns Hopkins University. Influenced by the work of James Dickey, AR Ammons, and Robert Penn Warren, Smith’s poetry chronicles the changing landscape of our country and the changing South.

Robert Penn Warren (1905-1989) is the only writer to have won a Pulitzer Prize in both fiction and poetry.
