We’re remembering Peter Everwine, an acclaimed Central Valley writer who died last month, by looking back at his poetry. Everwine taught English literature and creative writing at Fresno State for 29 years. He was the recipient of an esteemed Guggenheim Fellowship as well as a Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Everwine died in Fresno on October 28, 2018 at the age of 88.
Listen to the audio above to hear Everwine reading his poems, “In the Last Days” and “Night,” for the FM89 program “Valley Writers Read” in 2003.
