Frost Medal recipient.[/caption] As many people know, Lucille Clifton was born and raised near Buffalo, NY, so it is fitting that The Buffalo News would pay tribute to her with this beautiful article by R.D. Pohl. Lucille Clifton will posthumously receive the Poetry Society of America's Frost Medal tonight at the National Arts Club in New York City. "It will be a bittersweet celebration Thursday night at the National Arts Club on Gramercy Park South in New York City when the Poetry Society of America awards its highest honor -- The Robert Frost Medal for distinguished lifetime achievement in American poetry -- posthumously to Lucille Clifton. The Frost Medal typically involves a guest lecture on the part of the recipient, but this year the format has been changed to incorporate a tribute to Clifton's life and work featuring several of the leading figures in American poetry."
