Poetry speaks about people and the natural world

PULLMAN – “Nature Twice,” a special exhibit of poetry about animals and nature, will be on display in the Conner Museum of Natural History Sept. 9-Nov. 21.
 
“Nature Twice” explores diverse perspectives of animals and natural history through the work of several well-known poets.  The poems provide personal views of animals and the relationships between people and the natural world.  By matching poems with displays of natural history and animals, the exhibit encourages viewers to consider poetry as a tool for understanding the natural world.
 
Poets Linda Russo, WSU assistant professor of English, and Ray Hanby, a WSU graduate, will read from their recent work during the opening reception at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 in Abelson Hall, room 201.
 
The exhibit is being curated by students and faculty in the Department of English and the School of Biological Sciences at WSU. A guide to “Nature Twice” features essays about the exhibited poems by students and faculty in English and biology.
 
The exhibit is free and open to the public 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily in the Conner Museum of Natural History, Abelson Hall, ground floor.
