Award-winning local poet John Koethe, also a distinguished professor of philosophy emeritus at UW-Milwaukee, is returning to Boswell Book Company to present his new work, The Swimmer. His 10th poetry collection explores the nature of everyday life, creating a robust portrait of the individual that is complicated and truthful — one that “energizes” life’s trivialities, surprises, disappointments and “the terrible feeling of being just about to fall.”
