Albany Public Library to Celebrate Alumna Poet

Posted on: May 22, 2019

The Albany Public Library (APL) Foundation is honoring poet Lyn Lifshin ’60. In June, the New York-based nonprofit will screen a documentary about her titled “Not Made of Glass.” This fall, the APL Foundation will recognize Lifshin as a 2019 Literary Legend for her “contributions to literature and the City of Albany.” She is the author of more than 120 books and chapbooks, including “Little Dancer: The Degas Poems” (NightBallet Press, 2017).
