Join us for this special evening to hear featured speaker, award-winning poet,
scholar and teacher, Kathleen Spivack as we honor the late Gregory P. Stockmal,
owner with his wife Carol of the childhood home of US Poet Laureate Stanley
Kunitz. Gregory along with Carol forged a twenty year friendship with the
Worcester-born poet and were instrumental in his reconnecting to his Worcester
roots much later in life. Their home, his home, a tribute to all things Stanley and to years or refurbishing this home to the decade in which the poet lived there. We remember tonight through this honorary reading the energy and dedication Greg had to this project, as well as his role as the first person you met when you entered 4 Woodford Street, or whenever a question about an item or artifact of Stanley's history was involved in the conversation -- as we like to say "The Original Docent." Carol Stockmal will be present and refreshments will be provided.

Cost: free and open to the public

Suggested Audiences: Elders, Adult, College, High School
