APSU Poetry reading features President Tim Hall

President Hall-002

Austin Peay State University President Tim Hall doesn’t have much leisure time, but when there is a moment to spare, he often enjoys opening a book of verse by Alfred Lord Tennyson or William Butler Yeats. It’s a habit that started years ago when, as a high school student, he fell in love with poetry.

Hall will share some of his favorite poems, and possibly an original poem or two, at the APSU Honors Commons on Sept. 10 at 5 p.m. The reading is part of the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts’ Fall Salon Series.

“I’ve been reading poetry regularly since I was in high school,” Hall said. “I’ve picked out some of the poems that I have enjoyed across the years to share with the Austin Peay community and friends.”

The Salon Series, which is free and open to the public, was created four years ago as a way of bringing art enrichment activities to the Clarksville community. The APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts hosts a salon event once a month during the fall and spring semesters, featuring distinguished local artists, arts organizations or scholars, followed by refreshments and good conversations. The series, however, will come to an end in October with a final Salon event.

“The Salon Series has run its course and did a lot of good work developing interest in the creative arts,” Christopher Burawa, Center of Excellence director, said. “We were honored to host community artists as well as faculty artists, mostly at off-campus venues. The inspiration for the Salon Series was to promote and celebrate our shared cultural heritage. But now there is quite a growing and vibrant cultural scene in the community. I am happy we have been a part of that. The Center moved forward when it needed to and is stepping back for the time being.”

For more information on Hall’s Salon, the second-to-last event in the series, contact the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts at 931-221-7876.
