African American Read-In

Belk Library is excited to be hosting an African American Read-In honoring Black History Month. 
 
The event will be held on February 15, 2017 from 11:30-1:30 in the Belk Library atrium. Refreshments will be served.

 
Please stop by during that time to listen to or read works by African American authors. So that everyone can take part, readings will be 5 minutes or less and could include poems, passages from a novel, article, speech, etc. Feel free to bring a favorite or choose from the books we have on display on the 1st floor of the library.
