LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – A new anthology featuring the writing and photography of EOU faculty will be unveiled at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22 at the Integrated Services Building at 1607 Gekeler Lane.
Live music, refreshments and readings by the book’s contributors are part of the event. All are invited to attend.
Supporting the Education Student Crisis Scholarship is the motivation behind the “Golden Motes” collection just out from Mt. Emily Press.
The fund is established with the EOU Foundation and provides emergency awards of up to $500 to students enrolled in the university’s education program.
“There are so many students who make it nearly to completion and then run out of funds or face other hardships,” said Carol Lauritzen, EOU professor of education. “The scholarship is intended to help students through difficult times. It’s a place for them to turn when they need help.”
Lauritzen compiled and edited the anthology. She hopes the book will raise awareness of an opportunity to donate to the crisis scholarship, while also honoring the creativity of her colleagues in the College of Education.
The 64-page paperback includes poetry, essays, short stories, photographs and remembrances of 12 different education faculty members. Jan Dinsmore, professor of education at EOU’s regional center in Ontario, designed the cover.
Copies of “Golden Motes” will be available for $10 at the event or by contacting Lauritzen directly at 541-962-3557. Checks should be made payable to the EOU Foundation with Education Student Crisis Scholarship noted in the memo line.
