President Richard Trumka invites you to join him for a reading: U.S. Poet Laureate Philip Levine at the AFL-CIO

Philip Levine’s early experience as a Detroit autoworker is reflected in his poetry, which “elevates, and celebrates, the labor of America’s working class,” as Librarian of Congress Dr. James H. Billington described it. Called “the laureate of the industrial heartland,” Levine has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize, two National Book Awards and many other prestigious honors.
