Opening of Inventing the Page Exhibit Showcases Drexel Writers
On Wednesday, April 18, 2012, Drexel University Libraries welcomed over 40 guests to W. W. Hagerty Library for the opening reception of Inventing the Page: Student Literary Magazines at Drexel, an exhibit of creative writing from Drexel University Archives. Current Drexel faculty and staff reviewed past issues of Drexel’s literary magazines to help choose a sample of poems, essays, stories, and artwork for the exhibit. Chosen items were read aloud during the second half of Wednesday’s opening event.
The exhibit will run through June 17, 2012 and is open to the public during regular hours at W. W. Hagerty Library. A second event, a writing challenge, will be held on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 as a part of Drexel’s Week of Writing activities.
