A former West Texas A&M professor will have her writings come to life.

Jenny Lind Porter was the professor of English at West Texas State University from 1959 to 1961 and remained close to those at the school even after she left.

She served at the Texas Poet Laureate in 1964 and 1965 and soon after she started donating her collection of rare books, art and antique furnishings to WT.

Those donations helped to establish the Texas Poets’ Corner in 2003, that also features approximately 1,800 rare books, numerous pieces of furniture, artwork, photographs, and manuscripts.

“A Virtual Evening with Jenny Lind Porter,” will begin at 7pm on October 14 via Zoom and is free to attend.
