Literary reading on Nov. 7 in New York to support Kitengesa Library and FAVL
The Canadian organization YouLead has raised CAN$10,000 towards a computer center for the Kitengesa library. Before we can buy computers, however, we must purchase land and put up a new building, for the present building is not appropriate for expansion, nor can we stay on the school’s land for ever. The new building will include a community hall that can be rented out to generate an income. All this cannot, however, be covered by $10,000 (even Canadian ones); so we are now engaged in a drive to raise a further $10,000. We would like to invite you all to a special benefit reading on behalf of the library on Wednesday, November 7 at 7:30 p.m., in the Hunter College Archives, Room 222A, Hunter East (i.e. in the college library); the building is on the southeast corner of Lexington Avenue and 68th Street. The readers will be Donna Masini, Jan Heller Levi, Tom Sleigh, and Michael Thomas, all of whom teach in Hunter’s acclaimed MFA in Creative Writing Program. The suggested donation is $25 or $5 for students; or you may choose to sponsor a Library Scholar for $100.
