MISF presents their annual poetry program. We will feature Minnesota poet Tim Nolan, and, as usual, we are asking members of our audience to bring some of their own poems or some of their favorites to read as well. This has been one of our most popular programs.
Tim Nolan was born in Minneapolis in 1954 and graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1978 with a B.A. in English. He and his wife Kate moved to New York City in 1978 where he obtained an M.F.A. degree in writing from Columbia University, worked as an archivist at the Whitney Museum, and read the poetry slush pile for The Paris Review. Tim returned to Minnesota in 1985 and received his law degree from William Mitchell College of Law in 1989. He now practices law with the McGrann Shea Law firm and lives with his wife Kate and their three kids in South Minneapolis.
