Our English students come from many backgrounds, are interested in many different kinds of literature, and write creatively themselves. This 10-year campaign (we're now in year three) is raising funds for classroom visits from writers and other speakers as well as campus-wide presentations that we would like to sponsor with other Augsburg groups. Last fall we partnered with Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies to bring alumna Anne Panning back to campus for a reading of her new memoir, Dragonfly Notes. We also partnered with QIPoC to bring poet and anthologist Chris Soto in for a reading. To enrich our students' engagement with literature--as readers and as writers themselves--we want to establish a $25,000 fund over ten years. Our aim is to raise $3000 a year--$500 for current use and $2500 to build the reserve, which is our priority. When you give to our English fund, you are extending the literary and artistic horizons of our students, developing the Minnesota arts and literary scene, and contributing to the future of American literature itself.  Join us!
