Bates Student Honors Retirement of Robert Farnsworth

Bates College student Alex Tepliz wrote a touching account of favored professor Robert Farnsworth’s farewell reading at the Literary Arts Live program. An excerpt from the article reads:

“He speaks like he writes: words neat and clear, but burdened with poignancy and fervor. Bates has been lucky to have him and I, for one, will be sorry to lose him.”

Farnsworth is a former Poet in Residence at The Frost Place. He also served as a member of the Board of Trustees, where he acted as Secretary until his retirement from the Board in 2017.
