Poetry and the Children

Harpur College presented the 36th Annual Poetry and the Children Festival on May 22. About 400 students from 33 local schools read their poems and heard from English Professor and author Liz Rosenberg. 

The program honors the late Robert Pawlikowski, a published poet and Binghamton creative writing instructor who died in 1975 while vacationing with his family. Pawlikowski's wife, Mary Ann, attends every year, noting that her late husband "had a very deep love of children" and felt that "teaching poetry at a young age was ... very magical and wonderful." The program stands as an enduring testament to Pawlikowski's life, one that he devoted to cultivating the expressive and literary capabilities of both his own children and his many students.
