  • Blind Date with a Book
    Wednesday, February 14

    Blind Date with a Book is a pop-up library event that promotes leisure reading and a love of books! We collect popular fiction and non-fiction titles throughout the year, and hand wrap each book to conceal the title & author, leaving clues about the book’s identity on the wrapping. Traditionally, this event is offered on Valentine’s Day, February 14th, in ZSR Library.

    Join us to discuss Earthdivers, Vol. 1: Kill Columbus by Stephen Graham Jones. A limited number of copies of Earthdivers Vol. 1 are available for undergraduate student participants that RSVP for this event. Copies of this graphic novel are funded by the Student Activity Fee.
