5:00pm [5:00pm] reading by Poet and Essayist Mary A. Hood
Description:
RIT’s English Department Creative Writing Faculty are pleased host a reading by Poet and Essayist Mary A. Hood Wednesday, Feb. 20 5 until 7:00 pm Reading Room, Campus Center 2050 Professor Emerita of microbiology at the University of West Florida, Mary A. Hood grew up in a small town near Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Besides publishing over sixty scientific/technical articles in the field of microbial ecology and articles on conservation and the environment, she is author of The Strangler Fig and Other Tales: Field Notes of a Conservationist (2004 Rowman &Littlefield), RiverTime: Ecotravels on the World’s Rivers (2008 SUNY Press), Walking Seasonal Roads (2012 Syracuse University Press) and Sanctuaries: Parks, Reserves and Places of Refuge in the World (2017). All the Spectral Fractures (2017 Shade Mountain Press), and a soon to be published poetry chapbook Proverbs and Old Idioms. Hood approaches her varied subject matter—swamps and forests, small-town life, high-stakes science—with bracing honesty and compassion. Her poems offer meditations on the interconnections between humans, plants, and animals (“we of the self-replicating molecules”), and portraits of ordinary people “trying to keep it together / without the glue of ego, uncertain a unified theory / resolves chaos, wondering if we must break / to be whole.” This event is free and open to the public.
