Dr. Vitanza would like EGSA to host a discussion of the Beall poet Stanley Plumly the week after spring break. We would like EGSA members to pick a few poems by Plumly and lead faculty and student discussion of his work. You would pick the time and place that week. A number of his poems can be found online. I know nothing whatsoever about his work.

Can you please convey this message to EGSA and ask for several volunteers to do this? I know you all have your conference coming up, but the chair is desirous that EGSA do this. Let me know if you have any questions.
