As part of the university’s fall “Semester on War and the Representation of War,” the University of Maryland Libraries will host “War in Literature: Public Readings,” from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Tuesday, November 11 (Veterans Day), in McKeldin 6137. Members of the University community are invited to volunteer to read their favorite war poems, short stories, or excerpts from novels, plays, or memoirs. Each participant will have up to 20 minutes for his or her reading; selections that take less time are also welcome. Readers of non-English-language works are invited to read portions in the original language but should read most in English translation.
If you are interested in participating, contact either Eric Lindquist ([log in to unmask]) or Yelena Luckert ([log in to unmask]). Please indicate which work you are volunteering to read, how much time you will need, and what hours of the day you are available. For further information, consult
