Perkins in poetry reading at Walden Pond

Nancy Genevieve Perkins, associate professor of English, shared her own work as part of a poetry reading marking the Spring Equinox at Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts, on March 22. Sponsored by Tsongas Gallery, the event celebrated the return of light, the beginning of planting season, and the promise of life at the spot made famous by Henry David Thoreau.

Perkins writes, publishes, and reads her creative works under her first two names, Nancy Genevieve.
