CELEBRATE LITERARY LUMINARIES: FREDERICK DOUGLASS, LANGSTON HUGHES, ALICE WALKER
Thursday February 15, 2018
In an exciting new monthly program, Dr. Lynch will celebrate literary luminaries in recognition of their birthdays or anniversaries of extraordinary publications. Selections for her evocative reading aloud will be drawn from various genres, countries, and time periods. Each author can inspire, stimulate, and move us with his/her unique talents.
Three seminal figures of African-American Literature – of American Literature – will highlight our commemoration of Black History Month.
(Excerpts from Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: An American Slave, 1845; poems from the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s by Hughes; short story Nineteen Fifty-Five by Alice Walker)
Location: COMMUNITY ROOM - LOWER LEVEL
