VOICES Reading Series Presents John Lane
The VOICES Reading Series, co-hosted with the Environmental Studies program, welcomes John Lane (poet, essayist, environmental activist).
John Lane is a professor of Environmental Studies and English at Wofford College, where he also directs the Goodall Center for Environmental Studies. He is the author of twelve books, including poetry, prose, and edited anthologies. In 2011, Mercer University Press released his collection Abandoned Quarry: New and Selected Poems, which won the Southeastern Independent Booksellers Alliance Award as the best poetry collection of the year. In late 2012, Mercer also published Lane's latest essay collection, Begin with Rock, End with Water. His latest book is from Hub City Press, Web of Water: a collaboration with four photographers exploring the Saluda-Reedy Watersheds in upcountry South Carolina. For five years, Lane wrote a column for the Greenville/Spartanburg Journal called "The Best of the Kudzu Telegraph."
The VOICES Reading Series is co-funded by the English Department and the Arts Alliance of St. Mary's College of Maryland.
