John Barr Reading Series: Joshua Mehigan


Join us as we welcome Joshua Mehigan for the next program in the John Barr Reading Series, made possible through the generosity of the Poetry Foundation’s first president. This series annually presents one or two poets of extraordinary accomplishment and promise. Mehigan’s first book, The Optimist, was a finalist for a Los Angeles Times Book Prize. His second, Accepting the Disaster, was cited in the Times Literary Supplement, the New York Times Book Review, and elsewhere as a best book of the year. His honors include the 2011 Editors’ Prize and the 2013 Levinson Prize from Poetry magazine and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation.
