Galway Kinnell inducted to Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame

On Sunday, October 30, Galway Kinnell was posthumously inducted into the Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame.

Dr. Robert Billington presented the award to members of the Pawtucket Arts Commission, Miriam Plitt and Mary Lou Moran.  Mary Lou had been involved with the Pawtucket Arts Council, which sponsored  the Galway Kinnell Poetry Contest  and Kinnell often returned to his roots in Pawtucket to present the award.

Pawtucket also remembered Kinnell by electing him to its Hall of Fame. Patrick Conley said on October 30, “Today we do likewise.”
