Poetry Reading by Dr. Linda Lewis
September 8, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm| Free
The Birger Sandzén Memorial Gallery will host a poetry reading by Lindsborg resident Dr. Linda Lewis on Sunday, September 8, 2019, at 2 p.m. She will be debuting selections from her new collection of poetry, Ensemble, published by Spartan Press. A reception and book signing will take place afterward with books available for purchase.
Lewis received her PhD in English literature from the University of Nebraska and taught literature and writing at Bethany College from 1987 to 2014. She is now professor emerita. Ensemble takes its title from the company of characters who inhabit its pages: figures from history, myth, literature, the Bible, and popular culture. This is Lewis’s first published volume of poetry, although she has written poems for many years. Her previous books have been critical studies of the novelist Charles Dickens and poets John Milton, Dante, Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Blake, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, among others. While a Bethany professor, she was named recipient of several awards for teaching, scholarship, and service to students.
