Reading Poems: Celebrating Spring and the Natural World 

Nancy Reddy, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Writing and First-year Studies 

April 7, 14, 21 & 28, Wednesdays 3 - 4 p.m.

In this course, held during National Poetry Month, we’ll read poems about the natural world. After a tough 2020 and another winter of the pandemic, we’ll explore how poems can bring joy and wonder into our lives. We’ll read a range of contemporary poems, and the course will provide multiple entry points to reading and understanding poems. Whether you’re already an engaged poetry reader, or if you’re looking to explore something new, this course will have something for you.
