Prothro Room, Smith Library Center
In honor of Dave Eggers’s visit to our campus, the Smith Library Center invites the Southwestern community to attend an evening of literary games, readings, conversation, and delectable refreshments.
Members of the Southwestern community are invited to present their favorite selections from McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, or any of Mr. Eggers’literary endeavors. You can learn more about Eggers’ works by visiting the Dave Eggers LibGuide.
Selections must be read aloud in 5 minutes or less. Participants should be prepared to read and explain their choice of selection in front of an audience. Dramatic readings are also encouraged!
As an added bonus, winners of the Biblio/Graphics contest will be announced and prizes awarded.
If you are interested in participating in the event, please send an email to email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you there!
