Poetry Contest Winners Read Here Feb. 23

We love to have events, readings, exhibits, and other "happenings" in the library's presentation and display areas, and there is an exciting event coming up! 

Here in the library on Tuesday, February 23rd, at 4:00 the students who won the poetry writing contest will read their poems, followed by the announcement and presentation of the first and second prize winners .  Chairs and a podium will be set up in the North end of the library (the end next to the river for those of you are directional challenged like I am), and we'd love to have a big crowd to congratulate them on their achievement. 

This event is in recognition of African-American History Month and in  memory of John Stigall, Sr., Associate Professor of English.

Highlights of the evening will include:
Students will read Mr. Stigall's poetry.
Short videos of John Stigall will be shown in the library conference room.
Family members of the late Mr. Stigall will be invited to attend.

Make plans now to attend the poetry reading and enjoy the creative efforts of your fellow students.
