Students, professors, and poetry enthusiasts alike snapped their fingers and stomped their feet in applause and appreciation on April 10 in the Tomezsko Lounge for well-known poet John Hoppenthaler. The East Carolina University professor gave a sampling of his original poetic work at the annual LiTapaLooZa Literary Festival held each April in honor of National Poetry Month. Following Hoppenthaler’s professional readings, audience members were invited to share some of their own work. The event was sponsored by the campus literary magazine, Penn in Hand, as well as the Penn State Brandywine English Department.
