I’ll be talking about Robert Lax in the context of Catholic Literature and Biography as part of a panel on that subject at the 2017 Catholic Imagination Conference at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center campus April 27-29. One of my fellow panel members will be Dana Greene, author of a biography of Denise Levertov, who liked and promoted Lax’s work. Conference speakers include Alice McDermott, Richard Rodriguez, Dana Gioia, Fr. James Martin, and Paul Mariani. If you live in or near New York City, think about attending. It should be a great gathering and it’s inexpensive. You’ll find full details here.
