I attended the poetry reading by Dr. Mark Busby this afternoon in The Wittliff. One of my favorite parts of my job is meeting the faculty and seeing them do what they love. We can get so caught up in the fast-paced academic calendar that we forget why we were first drawn to the University. To have the opportunity to listen to inspirational poetry, eat fresh strawberries, and look at beautiful photographs... All in a day's work!
Check out our catalog for some of Mark Busby's books
We also have e-books available - click and enjoy!
