Mark Doty reading at next week's Sunken Garden Poetry Festival

Mark Doty is one of the great poets in the United States today and I was thrilled to get the chance to talk with him before he visits the Hill-Stead Museum's Sunken Garden Poetry Festival next Wednesday August 3. I've heard Doty read once before - his previous appearance at the Festival in 1997 - and his fourth book "Atlantis" is one of those books that when I read it as a teenager was one of the poetry books that really helped to shape my aesthetic as a writer and a reader.
