VIDEO: Rowan Ricardo Phillips On Winning The 2016 Anisfield-Wolf Award For Poetry

Cleveland welcomed poet Rowan Ricardo Phillips to town by giving him a good sense of our hometown pride. Visiting only months after the city won its first championship in 52 years, Phillips arrived in a walking boot, as he was recovering from surgery on his Achilles. As he made small talk, he'd remark, "Better me than Lebron, right?" To his surprise, everyone responded: "Yes, definitely. Better you than Lebron."Phillips told this story from the stage at Playhouse Square, where he was collecting the 2016 Anisfield-Wolf award for Heaven. We found a few quiet moments to speak with Phillips during his busy Cleveland itinerary about what this award means to him both personally and professionally:Rowan Ricardo Phillips, 2016 Winner for Poetry from Anisfield Wolf on Vimeo.
