April 6, 2022

Finlandia University Campus Read and Helsinki Slang present:

A Common Place: Remembering, Imagining, Healing

Finlandia’s Campus Read and Helsinki Slang communities invite all to attend A Common Place: Remembering, Imagining, Healing on Tuesday, April 19. The free event will start at 4 p.m. at the Chapel of St. Matthew where the winners of the 2022 Campus Read Writing Contest will be announced. For anyone interested in sharing their work, an open mic will be provided.

“This is a great opportunity for people to hear some powerful work by local authors, to present their own work in a supportive setting, and just to come together as a creative community after being physically isolated for so long,” Associate Professor of English Mark Lounibos said.

A recent announcement from Campus Read shared more details:

In conjunction with United States Poet Laureate Joy Harjo’s recent visit, please join us, along with celebrated Anishinaabe writer T. Marie Bertineau, to share stories about the power of place in the lives of individuals and communities. We will announce winners of the Campus Read Writing Contest and offer an open mic for anyone interested in sharing work oriented to our theme.

Date/Time: 4PM Tuesday, April 19,
Place: Chapel of St Matthew at Finlandia University

This event is free and open to the community.
