Campus poetry reading rescheduled for April 17

This is about a 1 minute read.

A poetry reading that had been scheduled for Tuesday, March 13, has been moved to Tuesday, April 17.

The reading, part of Keuka College’s Spotlight Series, will feature poet and Dundee resident Mary A. Hood.

Free and open to the public, the reading begins at 7 p.m. in the Gannett Room of Lightner Library.

A professor emerita of microbiology at the University of West Florida, Ms. Hood is the author of three collections of poetry, as well as three nature and travel essay collections, including All the Spectral Fractures: New and Selected Poems, The Strangler Fig and Other Tales: Field Notes of a Conservationist, RiverTime: Ecotravels on the World’s Rivers, and Walking Seasonal Roads.

“Walking slows the thoughts to the pace of meditation and mindfulness,” Ms. Hood said in a 2012 interview with NPR-affiliate WSKG radio on Walking Seasonal Roads. “There is probably no other activity that affords us the ease of connecting mind, body and place.”

The former poet laureate of the Florida Panhandle, Ms. Hood has published more than 60 scholarly articles in the field of microbial ecology, conservation, and the environment.
