Southeastern Community College will be hosting multiple poetry readings to celebrate National Poetry Month. Tomorrow, SCC’s Culture on Campus Committee and the Di Dante Literature and Writing Club will host Mary Fons, a nationally ranked slam poet. Mary Fons is a graduate of the University of Iowa who now lives in Chicago. She is the author of the popular blog, Paper Girl. The reading will be at 8:00 pm tonight. On the 26th, the Di Dante Literature and Writing Club is co-sponsoring Iowa Poet Laureate Mary Swander at the First Congregational Church in Burlington at 7:00 pm. Charles Burm, Di Dante Advisor, says they felt it was important to provide students with cultural opportunities that might otherwise be difficult to access.
