Acclaimed Poet Bob Pack to Read at UM

March 31, 2014

MISSOULA – The University of Montana Environmental Studies Program will host a poetry reading with Bob Pack at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 17, in the Davidson Honors College Lounge.

One of America’s most revered nature poets, Pack has won the acclaim of critics throughout his long career.  During the event, which is free and open to the public, Pack will read from his newest collection, “To Love That Well: New and Selected Poems.”

The collection reprises many of his best-known poems – both lyric and narrative, comic and meditative. Copies of the books will be available to purchase and Pack will sign copies after the reading.

Pack is a retired faculty member of UM’s Davidson Honors College, where he introduced its “Ways of Knowing” seminar – now a required part of the honors curriculum. In 2006, Pack was awarded the George M. Dennison Presidential Faculty Award for Distinguished Accomplishment.
