The Blaney Lecture
Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Sharon Olds presented the lecture "Favorite Moments in Poems from Chaucer to Clifton" on November 3, 2016, at The New School in New York City. Olds read and discussed poems that have been pivotal for her as a poet. The annual Blaney Lecture was created in memory of former Academy of American Poets Board member Dorothy Gulbenkian Blaney by a gift from her estate.
