A Reading with Lynne Spigelmire Viti '65

Virtual poetry reading delights student writers and alumnae alike

Mercy proudly welcomed Lynne Spigelmire Viti '65, senior lecturer emerita in the Writing Program at Wellesley College, for a virtual poetry reading from her most recent book, Dancing at Lake Montebello. Current Mercy students enrolled in AP Language and Literature and members of The Mercy Shield, our student newspaper, and Lance, our literary magazine joined alumnae members of those two publications, including members of the Classes of 1964-2003, for this special program. Lynne, an accomplished, award-winning author, discussed her creative process and answered questions from Mercy students and alumnae after the reading. Most recently, Lynne's work, "Pandemic Sonnet", was published in Pen-In-Hand, the Maryland Writers' Association’s biannual literary journal. To learn more, read some of Lynne's works on this list curated by Wellesley College.
