2019 Open Book
The 2019 Series will run Mondays and Wednesdays for four weeks: March 25 - April 17, 6-7 p.m. in the Campus Room of the Capstone Building. You are welcome to attend all eight nights as a public course or just come out to hear a new favorite author.
Each Monday will feature host Elise Blackwell or a guest speaker discussing that week's book, followed by the author's talk on Wednesday. All talks and author appearances run 6-7 p.m., including time for questions. Author visits conclude with a book-signing reception at 7 p.m.
Seating is first come, first served. Sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, The Open Book is free and open to all, including students, faculty, staff, and the wider community.
