Charles Wright was born in Pickwick Dam, Tennessee on August 25, 1935. He is the author of 24 poetry collections, including Caribou (2014), which Publishers Weekly calls “a dexterous balance of lightness in dark… rife with nihilism, humor, and beauty.” Wright’s many honors include the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award, as well as the 2008 Rebekah Johnson Bobbitt National Prize in Poetry from the Library of Congress. Wright served as U.S. Poet Laureate from 2014 to 2015.
