For more than 44 years, Bill Corbett has been a linchpin of literary life in Boston. He's a celebrated poet, memoirist and art critic, a professor of writing at MIT and the director of a small press publishing house called Pressed Wafer.

Along with his wife Beverly, he's made his home at 9 Columbus Square in the South End a hub for writers and artists to come together and share food, drink, ideas and conversation.
