Community members are invited to Moscow Public Library on Thursday, April 25 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. for the A Poet in Moscow: Poetry Reading and Meet & Greet with Poet Laureate Susan Hodgin.
Susan Hodgin, a Louisiana native with education degrees from Southeastern Louisiana University, is a retired Idaho educator with 35-plus years of teaching experience. She spends her time with her husband and their animals and can otherwise be found watching songbirds, coaching Poetry Out Loud at Moscow High School, and singing with UI Jazz Choir 1. Susan became Moscow’s second Poet Laureate and looks forward to serving the Moscow Arts Commission and community through 2020.
Poetry began for her as a classroom exercise, the writing teacher writing. From there, she found herself reflecting about what she saw in the natural world, a refreshing contrast to her school desk and computer desk at home. Her poetry is often prompted by an observation, a curiosity, finding a voice to tell a story.
