Second Annual African American Read-In Feb. 26, 2016
Join the second annual African American Read-In on Friday, February 26, 1:00-5:00 p.m. in the Dixie Marie Wooten Commons Area in Hodges Library. Students, faculty, staff, administrators—all are invited to read an excerpt from a favorite book by an African American author.
Readers can bring a book to the reading or select a text from African-American authored books that will be on display the day of the event. Contemporary, award-winning children’s and young adult books by African-American authors will be available for browsing in the Center for Children’s and Young Adult Literature (CCYAL) (3rd floor, Hodges Library) during the month of February, and during the event.
Authors Matt de la Pena and Rita Williams Garcia won major book awards earlier this month, and we are so excited they are both going to be speaking at the CCYAL this year.
Mark your calendars: Rita Williams Garcia will be here Monday, April 4, 2016, and Matt de la Pena will be here Monday, September 19, 2016. Stay tuned for more details on Facebook, in our forthcoming spring newsletter, and on our website.
