Todd Davis will read poems and show photos of the flora and fauna he interacts with as he explores Game Lands 108 and 158 above Bellwood and Tipton. Davis is an award-winning poet and author of five books of poetry, most recently Winterkill and In the Kingdom of the Ditch, both published by Michigan State University Press. He is professor of English and Environmental Studies at Penn State Altoona. An avid fly-fisherman and hunter, his essays have appeared in such magazines as Gray’s Sporting Journal and Orion, and his poems have been published in some of the nation’s best literary journals, including American Poetry Review and the North American Review. As a critic in the Chicago Tribune wrote, “Readers encounter the ordinary miracles that Davis reveals as both father and son within “the kingdom of the ditch” and are reminded that the human is not apart from nature but a part of it.” For more information about Davis and his work, visit his website.
