His diverse and prolific career includes contributing to the New Yorker since 1963 and writing his weekly “Deadline Poet” column for the Nation since 1990.

To build buzz leading up to the gala fundraiser, PKPR placed in depth previews in the Wall Street Journal, Metro, Time Out New York, and Gothamist.

Post-coverage of the event included The New York Times,, Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, The New Yorker, WNYC, NBC New York, Time Out New York, Flavorpill, Mediabistro, and Guest of a Guest.
