A marathon reading, at which volunteers take turns reading from a long work, relay-style, has been a springtime Writing Program tradition in recent years. This year, instead of reading from a single work, faculty, students, and staff will read excerpts from many texts representing the school's five-decade history, including selections from Adrienne Rich, Gloria Anzaldúa, Tony Kushner, bell hooks, Fred Moten and Stefano Harney, Cathy Park Hong, and Louise Erdrich, among others. Participants and audience members are encouraged to come and go throughout this three-hour event.
