The Poetry of Sport, The Sport in Poetry

Gary Margolis ’67, former Middlebury College varsity athlete, Executive Director of Counseling, Emeritus, and English and American Literatures Department member (part-time) will read sports poems from his seven collections and reflect on the relationship between athletics and poetry. An award-winning poet, ABC Channel 5 interviewed him on the Middlebury campus reading his poem, “Winning the Lunar Eclipse”, after the 2004 World Series. Boston Globe sportswriter, Dan Shaughnessy, has called Gary’s poetry, “thoughtful” and “inspired.”
