Lars Gustafsson: A Celebration of Poetry

The late Swedish writer Lars Gustafsson had a special connection to UT Austin. He lived in Texas intermittently and taught classes here in creative writing, world literature, and philosophy. Two of his novels are set in the Texas hill country. Gustafsson is considered one of Sweden's greatest poets and intellectuals. In this poetry recital, current UT undergraduate students will join faculty and alumni in reading work by Gustafsson, and his friends and former students will share stories about what they learned from him.
