The Women’s Read-in is in its 4th year at the Libraries. It is co-sponsored by the Women's Center and is held in honor of Women's History Month. All members of the University and Oxford communities are encouraged to participate and attend. We invite everyone to celebrate the literary works of women by selecting a short minute passage to share -- poetry, prose, letters, or portions of a novel. Original work is also welcome! The event this year will be held on Thursday March 25 from 11am-3pm in the IMC area of King Library (ground floor).
We will be having themed “hours” at the read in. Our themed hours for this year will be one on women in science and another on LGBT literature.
We generally have an attendance of well over a hundred people for the Read-in.
It really is a great event - a great chance to gather together and read and listen to writings by and about women.
