Workshops & Events

Here's a taste of our Spring 2018 programming. Check back soon for more exciting events.

All events take place in the Library unless otherwise noted.


Triton College Library Hosts Two Events Supporting the "One Book, One Leyden" Initiative

Join students, faculty, and staff from East and West Leyden High Schools and the Triton College Library in reading Outcasts United by Warren St. John this spring! The Triton College Library, in partnership with East and West Leyden High Schools’ “One Book, One Leyden” initiative, will be hosting two events in February inspired by the book Outcasts United, which details an extraordinary tale of a refugee youth soccer team and the transformation of a small American town. Copies of the book will be on display in the Library and available for students, faculty, and staff to check out with their Triton ID.

Faculty Panel Discussion

Join us for a faculty panel discussion inspired by the themes of immigration, refugees, and volunteerism featured in Outcasts United. Engage in a dialogue with an interdisciplinary panel of faculty as they discuss these important and timely issues.

Tuesday, February 13, 1-2:30 p.m. 

Documentary Screening

The Triton College Library will host a screening of The Other Side of Immigration, a documentary film which invites the viewers to examine the problem of immigration/emigration from a variety of angles and perspectives. Following the film presentation, Seth McLellan, film and media professor at Triton, will talk about the genre of documentary film and its relation to fiction. A group of Triton immigrants will then share their experiences of changing countries and continents, adjusting to new cultures and leaving the old countries behind. Our guests include immigrants from Lebanon, Yugoslavia, Mexico, Canada, France, Philippines, Indonesia, and more. Join us to share your experiences as an immigrant or a host of immigrants!

Wednesday, February 14, 6-8 p.m., Cernan Center Room I109
