She also has taught at the International Flamenco Festival at University of New Mexico. A singer and dancer, Temo has performed for flamenco great Jose Greco, and has been a featured performer with major orchestras in the United States and Canada.

Poet Stanley Plumly to deliver lecture at WMC

Prize-winning poet Stanley Plumly will present the 16th annual B. Christopher Bothe Memorial Lecture at 8 p.m. Tuesday in McDaniel Lounge at Western Maryland College.

The free lecture will feature a reading of his work, including his latest book, Now that My Father Lies Down Beside Me: New and Selected Poems, 1970-2000. An author of seven books, his first collection of poetry, 1970's In the Outer Dark, won the Delmore Schwartz Memorial Award and his third, 1977's Out-of-the-Body Travel, took the William Carlos Williams Award and was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

Plumly grew up in Ohio and Virginia, his family shuttling between farming and lumber jobs. Much of his poetry is dominated by images of his father, who died at age 56 of a heart attack brought on by alcoholism. He also features his mother, calling her "the silent, helpless witness of her husband's destruction."

A professor of English at the University of Maryland, College Park, Plumly has taught around the eastern half of the country.
