Visit BRIDGES -- for (art and) poetry

This growing-then-melting syllable-snowball poem is offered in recognition of mathematician-and-poet Sarah Glaz and as a reminder of the poetry reading Glaz is organizing --  to be held at the 2012 BRIDGES Math-Art conference at Towson University, July 25-29.

 Her
research
is in rings--
coherent rings,
flat ideals, and on.
But Sarah Glaz goes far
past   mathematics,  into
poetry  --  writes  of  calculus
and e and lots of other things.  She's 
organizing         a          poetry 
Conference at Towson 
University 
on Saturday,
on    July
twenty-
eight.

The poetry reading is a FREE conference event (no registration required) and will be held 5:30 - 7:30 PM on Saturday, July 28 at Kaplan Concert Hall Auditorium.  

All interested persons are cordially invited. 
Featured poets include Glaz and me (JoAnne Growney),
and these others: Tatiana Bonch-Osmolovskaya, Marion Deutsche Cohen,
 Emily Grosholz, Philip Holmes, Geof Huth, Alice Major,
Kaz Maslanka, and Stephanie Strickland.  

An open reading will follow the presentations by the featured readers; during that time other poets in attendance will be invited to read.

A recent e-mail alerted me to a review in Literary Review  by Alexander Masters of  Unknown Quantity: A Real and Imaginary History of Algebra by John Derbyshire (available from various presses).  It is said to be "filled with Lewis Carroll-ishness and poetry"  -- we should check it out.
