Binghamton University writers to offer peaceful reflections


Writers from the Binghamton University community will offer an evening of reflective readings on the meaning of peace at 7 p.m. Wednesday, February 12, in Lecture Hall 8 on the University campus. The event is free and open to the campus community.

The event, titled “Poets for Peace,” will mix the writings of several members of the Binghamton University campus community.  Participants include English Department faculty Pamela Gay, Martin Bidney, Lois Einhorn and Susan Deer Cloud. Students expected to read include Bethe Kelley and Doris Umbers.

The work of Ruth Stone will also be featured. Stone is a recent recipient of the Academy of American Poets’ Wallace Stevens Prize and a National Book Award. She is Bartle emerita professor of English and her work will be read by Elizabeth Tucker, associate professor of English.

In addition, audience members who wish to present a poem or work of art reflective of the meaning of peace will be invited to share their thoughts during an open mic session.

The “Poets for Peace” reading is sponsored by the faculty masters and the United Poets Coalition.
