Dead Writers’ Night

More than 160 TCC students, faculty and staff gathered in the Walsh Library on Oct. 19 for the first annual Dead Writers’ Night event.

Sponsored by the English Department, the Halloween-themed event encouraged participants to dress up in costumes inspired by their favorite deceased author or character and read from the author’s works.

Sixty-three students read from works including Shakespeare, John Milton, Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss) and Margaret Mitchell.

The event will continue next October, organizers said, and the committee is also planning a poetry reading event, SlamCon, on April 5.
