Merry Lea to host nature poetry reading

Mary Linton

She’s gone from Midwestern farm girl to scientist, but she’s always believed that a day mucking about a fertile wetland could not be better spent. Linton will share her poetry at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 at Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College, Wolf Lake, Ind.
