2018 Open Book
The Open Book is a literary series and community read rolled into one. You are welcome to attend all eight nights as a public course or just come out to hear a new favorite author. The 2018 Series will run Mondays and Wednesdays for four weeks: March 26 - April 18, 6 - 7 p.m.
Each Monday will feature host Elise Blackwell (or a guest speaker) discussing that week's book, followed by the author's talk on Wednesday. Author visits conclude with a book-signing reception at 7 p.m. All events will be held in the Campus Room on the first floor of the Capstone Building. Sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, The Open Book is free and open to all.
