Influential Words by Women Virtual Event 2021

Monday, March 22nd, 2021 at 12:00 PM

The Triton College Library’s celebration of women authors is going virtual in 2021!

Triton College students, faculty, and staff have two ways to participate in our event celebrating women authors - as a reader and as a listener. This year, readers have the opportunity to record and submit short videos of their readings for inclusion in a YouTube playlist.

In addition to the playlist, the Library will host a virtual reading event on Monday, March 22nd at 12:00p.m. via Zoom.
