Hovering between grief and joy, the abstract and the concrete, Gizzi's poetry explores the hardships and pleasures in life. A former poetry editor for The Nation, Gizzi has garnered numerous awards and fellowships, and has taught at Brown and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Learn More

This tour gave GREAT information about the gargoyles, including how to look for the different stone-carvers' styles and a good bit of interesting history. We saw a lot of different carvings, and now can't wait to go back on our own to hunt for more!
Remember to bring your binoculars, so that you can see the gargoyles that lurk in the distance!
