February 5, 2014
LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Hear Eastern Oregon University writing students read from original works of poetry beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19 at Joe Beans downtown.
The event is part of the Roundhouse Reading Series collaboration between EOU’s Ars Poetica Literary Lecture Series and Community Connection of Northeast Oregon, Inc., an affiliate of the Oregon Food Bank.
Those attending are encouraged to make a donation of canned or dried food at the door.
“Students want to give back to the community that has welcomed us here,” said Will Bowman, Ars Poetica student director. “Over the years, Ars Poetica has sponsored such events, but we are trying to start a new tradition that allows students to regularly engage with the community as a means of service learning.”
Nancy Knowles, EOU professor of English and writing and one of the event organizers, agrees.
“The more we can have groups like Roundhouse, EOU and Community Connection working together to serve local needs, the stronger and more cohesive our community becomes. This is a great opportunity.”
All readers at the benefit are undergraduates in the introduction to poetry course taught annually on campus to a cross-section of writing majors and general education students.
