Bob Holman

Cindy Seip

Bob Holman, spoken-word poet, arts administrator, and activist, recently published two books written 50 years apart: Life Poem, a recently discovered book-length poem he wrote at age 19, and The Unspoken (both on YBK/Bowery Books), a collection of recent works by the author, now a grandfather in his 70s. In his work, Holman often explores sexuality and art with humor and boldness, and writes with performance in mind.
