Robert Hass: Pulitzer Prize winner, former Poet Laureate and all-around baller.

Is there a better way to spend your lunchtime than by listening to the soothing sounds of poetry being read aloud? No. The answer, friends, is obvious, especially when you take into consideration that the poetry in question is being read by Pulitzer Prize winner and former Poet Laureate Robert Hass.

Really, guys, this is a no-brainer. It’s like story time, but more grown up and more better.

Find your way to the Morrison Library (better known as that room in Doe with the cushy sofas where everyone used to go for napping purposes until the librarians cracked down on the napping) on Thursday, Sept. 1. The readings start just after noon and last until almost 1 p.m., so if you cleverly managed to avoid classes during peak lunch hours, you know where to go.

“more better” — incorrect grammar!
