Kenneth Goldsmith Named Poet Laureate of the Museum of Modern Art

By Harriet Staff

We're thrilled to see Kenneth Goldsmith assuming the poet laureateship of the Museum of Modern Art, the first ever! We learned about this from the Columbia University Press blog, who tells us:

In connection with this, Goldsmith will be delivering a special lecture on March 13th. Goldsmith has also organized a series of guerilla readings in the MoMA galleries, readers include Rick Moody, David Shields, Heidi Julavits, Charles Bernstein, and Christian Bok.
