Glenbard West’s African American Read-In

February 13, 2024 @ 1:45 pm - 2:30 pm


At our second annual Read-In, Glenbard West hopes to celebrate Black authors by asking students and staff to read excerpts of poems, books, speeches, etc. which have been written by Black creators and have been meaningful to the readers. We will also feature art and music by Black students, gift cards from local and Black-owned businesses for our lucky raffle winners, and plenty of food, including chocolate caramel cups from Ms. Jana’s Candy in Aurora. We’ll be joined by local author and Associate Professor of English Tony Bowers, who will share some thoughts on the power of reading and writing, as well as an excerpt from his book of short stories On The Nine. You can view the program for our event here.
