March 27, 2008, 7 pm, Founder’s Hall, Saginaw Valley State University, 7400 Bay Road, University Center, MIFree
In celebration of the centennial of the birth of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Theodore Roethke, the actor and playwright Richard Fitzpatrick will perform a staged reading of his one-man play, Roethke and Me: Conjuring the Garden Master at Saginaw Valley State University. Incorporating the poetry and prose of the Saginaw-born poet, Fitzpatrick portrays Roethke in all his complexity: the poet and the teacher, the mystic and the madman, the child and the adult. Sponsored by Saginaw Valley State University LibraryInfo:   989-964-4236;
