Read-In Day to Celebrate Writing By and About Women
Location: Michael Schwartz Library

In celebration of Women's History Month the Michael Schwartz Library, in conjunction with the English Department and the Common Reading Program, is hosting a Read-In Day from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm on Thursday, March 24th.

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 First Year Students enrolled in ASC 101 Introduction to University Life and Honors Students, 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, Department of English, at 216-687-2563 or b.s.walker@csuohio.edu to discuss your selection and to schedule a time (limited to 5 minutes). 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.
