LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - As part of Lock Haven University’s Up-Write Reading Series, on Mon., Oct. 20 at 7 pm, nationally known poet Philip Terman will read selections from his poetry in the multipurpose room of the Parson’s Union Building. Lock Haven University is a member of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education (PASSHE), the largest provider of higher education in
the commonwealth. Its 14 universities offer more than 250 degree and certificate
programs in more than 120 areas of study. Nearly 405,000 system alumni live and

Terman’s collections of poems include “The House of Sages,” “Book of the Unbroken Days,” “Greatest Hits” and “Rabbis of the Air.” According to an Amazon.com reviewer, in “Rabbis of the Air,” Terman “writes of his Jewish ancestry and his current home in rural Pennsylvania, combining a fine lyric sensibility with an awareness of history and mystical tradition.”
Terman’s poems and essays have appeared in The Georgia Review, Poetry, The Kenyon Review, The New England Review, The Gettysburg Review, Tikkun, and other journals. He teaches at Clarion University and co-directs the Chautauqua Writers’ Festival at the Chautauqua Institute. Books will be available for purchase and signing at this free event.
