This annual event features a reading by American poet and visual artist Eric Pankey. The Heritage Chair in Writing at George Mason University, Pankey has authored 10 poetry collections, including “Trace,” which was published in February 2013, and the forthcoming “Crow-Work.”

His poetry, essays and reviews have appeared widely in such journals as The Iowa Review, The New Yorker and the Kenyon Review. His work has been supported by fellowships from John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, the Ingram Merrill Foundation and the Brown Foundation.

Born in Kansas City, Mo., in 1959, and educated in the public school system, Pankey earned a bachelor’s degree in 1981 at the University of Missouri-Columbia and master’s degree in 1983 at the University of Iowa. For more information about Eric Pankey, visit his website at ericpankey.com.

The Bothe lecture brings a visiting writer to McDaniel’s campus for one day to meet with student writers and to give a public reading and lecture. B. Christopher Bothe, a member of the class of 1972, was a poet, award-winning journalist, and printer who died in 1984. Bothe’s family and friends developed the lecture in his memory in 1987.
