Southeastern Community College will be hosting a poetry reading this week to celebrate National Poetry Month. 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. Charles Burm, Di Dante Advisor, says they felt it was important to provide students with cultural opportunities that might otherwise be difficult to access. The reading will be at 8:00 pm on Saturday.
