2nd Annual Kalevalathon Reading
February 28, 2020 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EST
Kalevalathon is back again for another year. Join students and faculty in celebration of Kalevala Day on Friday, February 28 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Finnish American Heritage Center as they read the Finnish epic poem, the Kalevala.
The event is free, open to the public and people can come and go as they please. The goal is get through as many of the 50 runes as possible. Come for your lunch break (bring your lunch), come between classes, come with your classes, or be like Dr. Hilary Virtanen and stay for the whole day. Copies of the Kalevala will be available for people to read from, including copies in Finnish. If you are interested in reading in another language, reach out to Dr. Virtanen directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
