Sean Thomas Dougherty
Thursday, April 21
5:00 p.m., Museum of Art
Perhaps best known for his live performances, Sean Dougherty has been called a “master of momentum.” His poems reflect the influences of his working class, interracial upbringing. He has written several books of poetry or mixed-genre literature, including Scything Grace, All I Ask for Is Longing: New and Selected Poems 1994-2014, and Broken Hallelujahs. Dougherty’s poems have appeared in multiple journals and anthologies, and he has edited several critical collections of poetry as well. He has performed his work across the U.S. and Europe in venues such as the Chicago Lollapalooza Music Festival and the London Poetry Café, as well as hundreds of universities.
This event is co-sponsored by the Common Reading Program and Lewis and Clark State College.
