In celebration of Women's History Month, the Library, in conjunction with the English Department and the Poetry Center, is hosting a Read-In Day in the Library from noon to 1:00 on Thursday, March 24. The campus community is invited to hear fellow faculty, staff, and students read aloud both fiction and non-fiction prose and poetry by and about women that is significant to them. This event is free and open to the campus community.
CSU students, in particular, are encouraged to not only attend the event for their enjoyment, but also for the opportunity to make the most of Women's History Month by learning about and sharing literary works by and about women. There is also the possibility that said works will foster among the attendees further interest and education about women's literature and history.
If you would like to participate as a reader, contact Professor Barbara Walker, English, at 216-687-2563 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your selection and to schedule a time (limited to 5 minutes). Time slots are filling up quickly--sign up today!
Read-In Day is a national initiative that is sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English that focuses on literacy by encouraging reading.
