Due to the closure of the OSU campus, Gary Young will read poetry at the Arts Center, 700 SW Madison Ave., Corvallis.
 
Gary Young has authored seven volumes of poetry. His most recent collection, Even So: New and Selected Poems (2012) comprises previously published poems and two sequences of new work. Young’s honors include grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the California Arts Council, the 1992 Pushcart Prize, the James D. Phelan Award for his collection The Dream of a Moral Life (1990), the William Carlos Williams Award for No Other Life (2002), and the 2013 Lucille Medwick Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America.
 
Young’s print work is represented in collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and The Getty Center for the Arts. In 2010 Young was named the Poet Laureate of Santa Cruz County where he teaches creative writing and directs the Cowell Press at UC Santa Cruz.
 
 
Each year the Visiting Writers Series brings nationally-known writers to Oregon State University. This program is made possible by generous support from The Valley Library and OSU Press, the OSU School of Writing, Literature and Film, the College of Liberal Arts, Kathy Brisker and Tim Steele, and Grass Roots Books and Music.
