The Office of Public Engagement in collaboration with Rohrbach Library’s Voice & Choices Center introduces four annual bookish interludes and invites you to attend the first Kutztown University Reading Exchange.
The opening reading is from bestselling author, Walter Mosley’s Futureland: Nine Stories of an Imminent World. Angel’s Island is the short story of an imprisoned computer hacker, Vortex “Bits” Arnold. Photocopies of this science fiction tale are available at the library’s circulation desk.
It is an opportunity to:
Become acquainted with the voices of historically under-represented groups in the Diaspora through their own written works—In February, Blacks; in April Asians; in October Latinos/Hispanics; and in November Native Americans.
Read and discuss
Exchange information about your favorite book, or the latest, or the most controversial, or most puzzling, or most frustrating, or the most captivating book you have read by an author from the African Diaspora.
Be curious and engaging
Share and learn diverse perspectives
