Professor, poet, and former Iowa Citian Stephen Kuusisto will read from his new memoir, Have Dog, Will Travel.  "Never before has the subtle relationship of a blind person to a guide dog been clarified in such an entertaining way. That Stephen Kuusisto enables us to see the world through his blind eyes as well as through the ‘seeing eyes’ of his dog is this book's amazing, paradoxical achievement."—Billy Collins

A graduate of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop and a Fulbright Scholar, Kuusisto has taught at the University of Iowa, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and Ohio State University. He currently teaches at Syracuse University where he holds a professorship in the Center on Human Policy, Law, and Disability Studies.
