Author Event | Keith Taylor: All the Time You Want: Selected Poems 1977-2017
Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room
AADL welcomes Keith Taylor for the launch of his new collection of selected poems, All the Time You Want: Selected Poems 1977-2017. In this collection, Taylor, acclaimed poet of the Upper Midwest and the author of eighteen celebrated collections, delivers a stunning medley of his most lasting work: poems that remain vivid in the imagination, that have achieved a life beyond their first appearance on the page.
Keith Taylor has authored or edited 18 books and chapbooks, the most recent of which, published in 2021, is Let Them Be Left: Isle Royale Poems. His last full length collection, The Bird-while was published by Wayne State University Press and won the Bronze medal for the Foreword/Indies Poetry Book of the Year. He has received Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs, among others. After a series of mostly menial but formative jobs, he worked for most of twenty years as a bookseller, before teaching for a few years in the writing programs at the University of Michigan.
This event is in partnership with Literati Bookstore and includes a signing with books for sale.
