The University of Portland will host poet, professor, and scholar Sr. Eva Hooker, C.S.C., as she reads from her new collection of poetry, Godwit (“at once pastoral, startling and luminous”) on Monday, April 4, at 7:15 p.m., in Franz Hall Room 120. Her talk is free and open to the public.
Hooker is professor of English and writer in residence at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Ind. Her Notes for Survival in the Wilderness, profoundly influenced by Lake Superior and Madeline Island, was published in 2011. Her earlier work, The Winter Keeper, was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award in poetry in 2001. Prior to her appointment at Saint Mary’s, she was regents’ professor of poetry at Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minn.
This event is co-sponsored by the Garaventa Center and the English department. Sr. Hooker’s poetry will also be featured in the Women of the Bible concert on Saturday April 2, at 7 p.m., in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher.
