Christian Wiman, nationally renowned poet, editor of Poetry magazine and author of The Long Home and Ambition and Survival: Becoming a Poet, is known for employing tightly controlled traditional techniques to explore spirituality rather than the chaotic broken-prose confessions favored by other contemporary poets. However, his insistence on starting every piece with "There once was a man from Nantucket" is getting tiresome. Wiman will read poetry and sign his books Tuesday and lead a discussion about creative writing and faith Wednesday. Both events are at 7 p.m. at the University of Dallas Lynch Auditorium, 1845 E. Northgate Drive in Irving. Visit udallas.edu.
