Faculty reading inspires English students

Sigma Tau Delta, Union’s English honor society, hosted a faculty reading Sept. 25 that demonstrated the literary works of Dr. Pam Sutton, Dr. David Malone and Professor Bobby Rogers.

The professors read their poetry and personal essays aloud to students and colleagues.

Works included Rogers’ “I Will Not Talk in Class;” Malone’s “Status Update;” and an essay by Sutton titled “I am Not June Cleaver.”

Roger Stanley, assistant professor of English and the honor society’s sponsor, said the faculty reading allows students to recognize that professors take time for research and writing regardless of their rigorous teaching schedules.

“It allows students to see that we practice the craft we teach, and it helps them relate to us as fellow writers,” Sutton said.

Ellen Cline, junior art major and English minor, said she enjoyed the event because of the experience of hearing pieces read aloud by a writer.

“I left wanting to write, feeling like I could write if I just worked as hard as they do,” Cline said.
