Wednesday, April 11th ” Edible Books Contest”. Join the Gingrich Library in celebration of National Library Week!
Potential contestants should plan to browse the shelves of the Gingrich Library or their own private collections for inspiration, and then locate the edible supplies they need to sculpt or build an artful rendering of a favorite book title, literary character, or book-related play on words. All entries must be predominantly edible (but we won’t eat your work) and able to stand for the three hours that encompass the judging and display period. Entries can be whimsical, artistic, or just be a cute pun on the book title. Both campus groups and individuals can enter.
Judging is based on originality, unusual use of food, adherence to the book theme, play on words, creativity and appealing design Judges come from the Art Department, the English Department, and the Library. You do not have to be an expert artist to win. Remember this is FUN!
All entries must be submitted by 11 am. Entries will be on display in the Gingrich Library (main floor)with prizes being awarded for entries at 3 pm. Entry forms are available at the circulation desk. They can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at the circulation desk when completed!
6 categories = 6 chances for prizes!!!!
Thursday April 12th Facul-tea with Elizabeth Kiester Ph.D ” For the Bible Tells me So: Understanding the Impact of Religious Beliefs and State Policy Attitudes Towards LBGTQ Individuals”.
Dr. Kiester will be talking about ACRE research she conducted with a former student. What is the role of religious beliefs in shaping attitudes towards LGBTQ individuals? Additionally, what effect might policies have in mitigating or enhancing that effect? Their research suggests that religious beliefs and pro-equality policies act as a mechanism for what we believe and who we know which in turn have an effect on attitude formation.
This is an Experience Event!!
Hope to see you at any one of these Awesome April Events!!!
