Poetry reading to celebrate opening of Tisdale Collection

March 29, 2012

 Robert Tisdale, Marjorie Crabb Garbisch Professor of English and the Liberal Arts, Emeritus, has generously donated his collection of poetry books, accumulated over his long career at Carleton, to the Weitz Center for Creativity.  The collection will be housed in the second floor lounge, just outside the Larson Meeting Room.

At 4:30 p.m. Friday, March 30, join us for a participatory celebration of this remarkable gift.  After opening remarks from Professor Tisdale, we'll bring the collection to life by inviting attendees to choose a book from the shelves, flip it open, and offer a reading. 

Light refreshments will be served.
