We have a program in the Rohrbach Library called the KU Reading Exchange. During these presentations an individual (or individuals) reads to an audience and then we have a discussion. On Thursday, October 14, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. we will again offer “Every 1 Knows Some 1: KU Students Tell Their Own Coming Out Stories.” Several students from Kutztown University Allies will read their short personal essays. This annual celebration has been incredibly powerful over the past years.
We have also assembled a display of library resources for National Coming Out Day featuring the 2010 Stonewall Book Awards. Established in 1971 and sponsored by the American Library Association’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered Round Table, the award is the first and most enduring for GLBT books. The display is located on the second floor of the library and will serve as the backdrop for the event.
Please join us.
