Public Conversations about Literature

Join English faculty as they discuss works of literature that have challenged and inspired them as readers, scholars, and teachers. Each "Reading Together" session will feature faculty in conversation and open up to a wider conversation with attendees - our hope is that we can think about, question, discuss, and read these poems and stories together.

All sessions will take place in-person only and are free and open to the public.
