Read with the President- Wed Feb 4- at the library!

College President Daisy Cocco De Filippis, Ph.D., will help to kick off a series of library readings on Wednesday, February 4 from 1-2 p.m., in the Max R. Traurig Library at NVCC.

Dr. De Filippis will read her essay “The House that Mamá Biela Built,” which was published as part of the Telling To Live collection that received a Human Rights award in 2001.

The program will also include readings by NVCC student Mauricio Pita-Goncalves, vice president of the student government association, and Elizabeth Frechette, librarian.

“We want the experience to be a cozy gathering of people who love reading and connecting with other people,” said De Filippis. “Hearing the power of the written word spoken is a way to connect people, to bring them together.”

Each reader will choose a 10-15 minute reading and discuss its meaning, their interpretation and the significance of the reading to them. The audience will also have a chance to interact with the readers and share their own thoughts and feelings.

The event will take place in room L524. Hot chocolate and light refreshments will be served. Please call Elaine Milnor, program coordinator, at the library (x8147) for additional information.
