Literature Day!

On November 18, 2015 between 9 am and 2 pm; the Department of English is hosting a Literature Day event! Pass by the upper gate to enjoy games, listen to poetry and win prizes!

In addition, the event will re-launch the “Page Turner” book club, supervised by Dr. Kris Aercke, which encourages students to read and engage with texts in LAU’s reading community.

Information Desk

Students can get information about literature courses at LAU and hear their peers’ experiences with literature.

Game Booth

Students will test their literary knowledge, compete in a Book-Sorting Race, and form teams for a Scavenger Hunt in the library.

Scavenger Hunt at 10:00
Students can come with a team of 4 people or get assigned to a team at our booth. The first team to solve all their clues correctly and come back to the Game Booth wins.

Students can visit this table for more information on the book club and join on the day of the event.

Poetry Slam 

Between 12pm and 1pm, students will participate in one of the most vital and energetic contemporary movements across Europe and America in performance art, the poetry Slam. The Slam session at the LAU “Literature Day Event” is a poetry competition in which poets perform original work alone or in teams before an audience, which serves as judge. The work is judged as much on the manner and enthusiasm of its performance as its content or style. Slam poems are not intended to be read silently from the page. Poems will be performed live by participating students and will convey relevant issues of concern to our contemporary life styles.
