On Wednesday, May 2 two great poets will be reading their work at the NYS Writers Institute. Harry Staley and former student George Drew (side note, I was a student of Drew’s) will be taking the stage for an afternoon reading at SUNY Albany’s uptown campus.

Harry Staley, poet, beloved UAlbany Professor Emeritus, and noted scholar of the works of James Joyce, along with one of his former students, award-winning poet George Drew, will read from their new poetry collections on Wednesday, May 2, 2012  at 4:15 p.m. in the Science Library Room 340  on the University at Albany uptown campus.
