What's Going On?

This Thursday --  The Salon

Join us in the Atrium of the Library on October 30 at 3:30 for the fall installment of The Salon, the biannual reading series co-sponsored by the Library and the Department of Languages & Literature.  We'll continue our traditional fall theme of horror/suspense literature.  Costumes are encouraged and we'll have appropriate Halloween-themed refreshments, along with a few "door" prizes.  Bring your own favorite horror or suspense piece to share, but we'll also have plenty of books of poetry and short literary pieces available.
