Howard Horowitz will read “The Wawayanda Watershed” and other poems. Howard Horowitz is the Author of “Close to the Ground”, a book of tree planting poems. Horowitz is famous for creating cartographic works that visually integrate geography, history and poetry. Horowitz creates beautiful poems and then structures them around the shape or form of what the poem is about. The most famous example of this technique is his poem “Manhattan” that was published in the New York Times. He is a Professor Emeritus in Geography from Ramapo College, and has written about forestry and environmental science as well as poetry.Location:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult, Teen
