April 5– April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate it, the english department hosted a “Dead Author” Night in the UC Lounge.
Faculty and students read works from some of their favorite deceased writers, such as Ernest Hemingway and Walt Whitman. In addition, participants were encouraged to come in costume.
The faculty organizers serve on the Student Engagement Committee in the english department. They also organized the Poetry Slam on Valentine’s Day.
Everyone at the event was invited to sign up to win a gift card from the campus bookstore.
