Biography of Lewis Bosworth
I've been writing poetry for many years and have published a few. Only recently a book - see below.

I've taught at the Universities of Wisconsin and Michigan and at Wesleyan University in CT. My interests are musical theater, church activities, fine dining, Americans With Disabilities and LGBTQ studies.
