UNM Poets and Writers Series Presents: Irving Weinman

March 30, 2009

Irving Weinman will be reading Monday, March 30 at 7:00 pm in the Student Union Building – Luminaria Room

Irving Weinman was born in Boston and educated there and in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Dublin, Ireland, and Cambridge, England. He has spent much time attempting to overcome the benefits of this education by working on boats in the West Indies, playing jazz piano in various dives and continents, and finally, and in this order, by writing poetry, short stories and novels. His four published novels are character thrillers filled with action large and small. He has also written reviews for major US and British publications and taught fiction and led workshops in English and American universities. He has been Chair of the Poets’ Workshop at the British Poetry Society, and he is the founder and Executive Director of the Key West Writers’ Workshop.
