John Rybicki Reading and Q&A

John Rybicki was born in Detroit, Michigan. He is the author of three poetry collections: When All the World Is Old, Traveling at High Speeds, and We Bed Down into Water, all of which are available to read through the library. His poems have been published in The Best American Poetry 2008, Alaska Quarterly Review, Field, Paris Review, and Poetry magazine.

Rybicki teaches poetry to young writers through the InsideOut literary arts project and Wings of Hope Hospice. He is a writer-in-residence at Alma College in Michigan.

We are pleased to welcome John Rybicki to the Olean Public Library through a grant procured through the staff at St. Bonaventure University!

Rybicki will be at the library on March 29th at 7:00 pm for a poetry reading and Q&A session.

Refreshments will be served! Please plan to stop down and chat with a world-renowned poet.
