Come and join us in congratulating them on the fruits of their labors at our Faculty Scholars event, and the opening of the Faculty Scholars exhibit, tomorrow from 3-5 p.m. on the second floor of the Drexel Library. An opening by President Father Lannon and the Provost, Dr. Brice Wachterhauser, will be followed by presentations from four faculty members who will talk about the projects they’ve worked on and the things that they’ve published in 2008. The exhibit and presentations will feature not only journal articles and books, but also creative works or projects that professors have been apart of. Come get the scoop on what your professors do outside of the classroom!
The program will include presentations by:

As many of you probably know, February is Black History month, and, in the spirit of celebrating African American contributions to society and culture, the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English sponsors a nation-wide read-in of African American literature. All across the country, all month long, schools, college campuses, churches, libraries, and other community and cultural centers will host gatherings where people can come, listen, and read their favorite writing from African American authors.
The Drexel Library, too, has a history of joining in with their own hosted read-in, which will take place on Monday, February 2, at 3:30 p.m. Come join in by bringing your favorite African American writer’s work to read, or just come by to listen and reflect.
We hope to see you there!
