Wisconsin Native American Read-In

When: Nov 30, 2012 7:30 AM to 7:30 PM

First Nations Studies, Educational Leadership Department, and Office of Multicultural Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Superior have joined together in sponsoring our campus's second annual Wisconsin Native American Read-In this week!

The Read-In is focused on books authored by Wisconsin Native authors. Everyone is invited to participate. This event will take place Wednesday through Friday, November 28- 30, in the Educational Leadership Resource Room (2045 Swenson Hall).

Books and refreshments will be available from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. each day of the
read-in. Participants will find stacks of books at each table, including many
picture books available for quick and delightful reading!

While the read-in centers on books by Wisconsin native authors, there will be books authored by nationally acclaimed native authors as well. All are encouraged to sign in to
become part of a chain of readers that are discovering great works by Wisconsin
native authors this month.

The read-in is an event organized by the Wisconsin State Reading Association. This annual event takes place the entire month of November, with schools, libraries, and organizations throughout Wisconsin holding read-in events to become part of a statewide chain. This is the second year UW-Superior has participated. Last year nearly 100 UW-Superior participants read over 150 books during the three-day event!

This event is free and open to the public.
