In his final year as an Upper School English and history teacher, W.D. Ehrhart served as the 21st annual Edward R. Hallowell Literary Lecture speaker. Ehrhart recited several of his poems, and told the stories that inspired his writing, to a standing-room only audience on April 23, 2019. The lecture marked the first time a current faculty member was invited to serve as the Hallowell speaker.
Ehrhart is the author of 18 books of poetry and prose, and a dozen poetry chapbooks. He’s also served as the editor or co-editor of four anthologies. His most recent book, Thank You for Your Service: Collected Poems of W.D. Ehrhart was published in early 2019.
