The Poetry Break: Robert Morgan

Cornell Chronicle

Robert Morgan is a native of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Essayist, novelist, teacher, short-story author, poet, and “an unassuming gentleman and a friend to artists everywhere,” Harshman said. His novel Gap Creek was a selection of the Oprah Book Club and a New York Times Best Seller.
