Garden of Verses: A Virtual Benefit for The Merwin Conservancy in Honor of W.S. Merwin's Birthday

On Wednesday, September 30th, The Merwin Conservancy will gather virtually with friends around the world to remember W.S. Merwin on the occasion of his birthday, and share a vision for stewarding his legacy. You'll be invited inside William and Paula Merwin's home, along the trails of the palm forest, and into a place that will continue to foster a vibrant creative life through our collective stewardship.

Carrie Fountain, Roshi Joan Halifax, Edward Hirsch, Jane Hirshfield, Dr. Pualani Kanaka‘ole Kanahele, Kealoha, Dr. Elizabeth Kapu‘uwailani Lindsey, Howard Norman, Naomi Shihab Nye, Matthew Carlos Schwartz, and Cathy Song will join us, reading from William's poetry and sharing reflections on an extraordinary legacy.
