FRIENDS OF HANLEY LIBRARY TO PRESENT ANNUAL SEASONAL READINGS ON WESB

BRADFORD, Pa. – The Friends of Hanley Library at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will present its 23rd annual “Seasonal Readings” on WESB’s LiveLine program next week.

The show, which can be heard at 1490 AM, will be broadcast at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Dr. Don Ulin, associate professor of English, will offer a program based on the poetry of Robert Frost, one of the most popular and critically respected American poets of the twentieth century. Frost’s poems, frequently set in New England in the early twentieth century, reflect the beauty and harshness of nature and rural life. While many of his poems can be enjoyed on the surface as lovely and direct, Frost entices his readers with the dark depths of possible meanings and interpretations. This is particularly true of his well-known poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” The show will be available online at http://wesb.com/on-demand that afternoon.

The annual radio readings on WESB began with the late Dr. Robert C. Laing, Jr., professor emeritus at Pitt-Bradford. Since 2001, Ulin has carried on this treasured Bradford tradition.

The Friends of Hanley Library was founded in 1990 to strengthen relations between the community and Pitt-Bradford’s Hanley Library. The Friends also acquaint area residents with what the library has to offer by sponsoring cultural and educational programs, usually related to books and their authors.
