Second Annual African American Read In

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.
