Award-winning poet Mary Ruefle will give a reading at Hobart and William Smith on Tuesday, March 2. She will begin with a question-and-answer session at 4:45 p.m. in Gulick Hall, room 100. Ruefle will then read her poetry at 7:30 p.m. in the Geneva Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library. The reading is free and open to the public and will be followed by a dessert reception.
The author of seven books of poems, including “Cold Pluto,” “Post Meridian,” and “Among the Musk Ox People,” Ruefle has received fellowships and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Academy of Arts and Letters. She lives in Massachusetts and teaches in the M.F.A. program at Vermont College.
Ruefle’s visit is co-sponsored by Writers Reading and the Faculty Speakers Fund and has been funded in part by Poets & Writers, Inc., through a grant it has received from The New York State Council on the Arts.
