Read-In Day to Celebrate Writing By and About Women
In celebration of Women's History Month, the Library, is hosting a Read-In. Join the campus community 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. CSU students, in particular First Year Students enrolled in ASC 101 Introduction to University Life, 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.

If you would like to participate as a reader contact Professor Barbara Walker, English, at 216-687-2563 to discuss your selection and to schedule a time (limited to 5 minutes). Sign up today!
