Upcoming Events

Sep 16

Emerson Hall Poetry Night

7:30pm to 9:30pm

Location: 

Robbins Library, Emerson 211

Please join us for our regular reminder-and-celebration-of-our-humanity at the Emerson Hall Poetry Night!

If you're a newcomer, the basic idea is this: people sign up for ten-minute slots during which they can read their own poetry or any other poetry that they really like (or really, anything creative that has poetic qualities).

So, come to read or just to listen! And bring your significant other, friend, family members, etc. People from all departments are welcome. There will be drinks and snacks, good poetry and excellent company. We hope to see you there!
