A Marathon Reading of Milton's Paradise Lost
at Longwood University
Friday, 17 October 2014
Sponsored by the Department of English and Modern Languages
and the Office of the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs
The Department of English and Modern Languages would like to invite members
of the Longwood, Farmville, and Prince Edward county communities to join us in a marathon
reading of John Milton's Paradise Lost.
Location: Look for the tent in front of the Grainger Building
Time: 8:00 a.m. until ca. 5:00-6:00 p.m.
Milton was an advocate of freedom and liberty, so readers are
welcome to come and go as their schedules permit.
Sitting in to read even a hundred lines or so will help. Just find a seat, and read
as much as you'd like when your turn comes around.
Don't worry if you can't pronounce a word--that's part of the fun.
If you'd prefer only to listen, feel free to pass the reading off to the next person.
Free and open to the public.
Refreshments and apples will be provided.
If you have one, bring your copy of Paradise Lost; if not, extra copies will be available.
