Charles Simic, one of America's preeminent poets, will give a reading of his poems at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting on Tuesday, October 23 at 7PM. The reading by Simic, who won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1990 and was named the United States Poet Laureate in 2007, will be appearing as part of the studio's Harold Clurman Poetry Reading Series.

Simic's surreal and dark poems are influenced by his early years spent in war-torn Europe. He was born in Belgrade, Serbia, but Simic and his family were displaced throughout World War II and the post-war years, eventually settling in the United States. He received his B.A. from New York University. He has published more than twenty collections of poetry, six books of essays, a memoir, and numerous translations.

Poet Deborah Landau, Clinical Professor and Director of the Creative Writing Program at New York University, will introduce Charles Simic and read some of her works as well.

The event is free and open to the public. No reservations are required and guests will be seated on a first-come basis.
