David Huddle will read fiction and a bit of poetry at 8 pm in GH 109 on Thursday, Sept 16.. This will be the first reading in the Distinguished Visiting Writers Series for this school year. Please encourage your students to come. Huddle’s writing has a mix of humanity and imagination that your students will enjoy. One of his poems (“Deathlight”) has these lines: “Up on the mountain, the path/ to Johnson Pond leads down through deepening/ layers of darkness. Then it opens onto/ silvery water with cool air rising/ to your skin like death giving you a peck/ on the cheek, so gently reminding you/ of your true destination that you think,/ Oh this is not bad, this is kind of nice.”

As always, after the reading there will be a reception with plenty of good food for everyone.
