Announcing the 2013 LAF special guest speaker!

Prof. Caroline Hellman, the fearless leader of the Literary Arts Festival, recently announced the special guest speaker for this year’s Literary Arts Festival: Katie Dellamaggiore , the Director of the documentary film Brooklyn Castle. The film has garnered extensive accolades, and will facilitate discussions with students regarding storytelling in film, public education funding, activism & the arts.

Also joining Katie Dellamaggiore will be Pobo Efekoro, one of the student chess stars in the film. Yes, that’s right: two special guests instead of one!

Stay tuned for news of a screening of Brooklyn Castle on campus prior to the Festival and further information. In the meantime, watch the Brooklyn Castle trailer  or read press coverage about the film.

Remember to mark your calendars for Thursday, April 18th, 5pm, Midway Community Room for the festival!
