The 9th Annual Poetry Reading

On Thursday, April 19, the ninth annual Poetry Reading in honor of National Poetry Month was held in the Fishbowl of the E.H. Little Library. In order to make the event more open than years past, speakers from on and off campus presented in the Fishbowl. Afterward, speakers and listeners alike were treated to refreshments in the Rare Book Room. Thank you to all who visited and especially to our poets: Chanda DuBose, Carlos Miranda ’18, Evan Yi ’18, and Maurice Norman ’20!
