Regent Reads—summer children’s literature series at the University Library

Written by Sara Baron, Dean of the University Library

President Carlos Campo will be reading "Pablo Neruda: Poet of the People," by Monica Brown
This summer the Regent University Library will be hosting our second annual summer literature program for children ages six to eleven. Regent Reads 2012 will feature award- winning books about everyday heroes from around the world. Join us in July and August for engaging sessions with University leaders, faculty and Library staff reading books about everyday heroes from Judaism, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Lively discussion, creative activities, healthy snacks, and a book drawing will round out each program. All books selected have received national recognition for well-crafted writing and/or beautiful artwork. We look forward to sharing these stories with children and their families and friends who join them.

Sessions are on July 12th, 19th, 26th, and August 2nd from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. in the Library Gallery. All Regent Reads events are free, and no advanced registration is required. For a complete schedule of events, including times and book selections, see the Regent Reads webpage.
