It’s amazing to think that Trine University is in the home stretch of the spring semester, but it’s that time of year once again. With the semester over halfway done, it’s time to start asking a very important question: What will I be reading over the summer?
If the answer to that question isn’t clear, then Trine HAC has an event to fill every book lover’s needs! For the fourth year in a row, the LINK in the University Center will be hosting the Trine HAC Book Night. For those who have collected a few too many books recently, donations for Book Night can be made through the 20 of April at any of several drop-off locations.
Book Night itself will be held on April 27 from 5 pm – 9 pm. In addition to being able to pick from a selection of free books, a prize pack will be given away to the winner of a random drawing of those who have come to participate for the evening. When done selecting free books and entering the drawing, attendees will also have the opportunity to listen to a number of poetry and short story readings performed by Trine students from Professor Lou Ann Homan’s public speaking class. Those performances will begin at 6 pm and continue throughout the evening.
The prize pack will be chosen through student and community voting from one of the five following options. The pack that gets the most votes by April 22 will be given away in the drawing. You can vote via the form below.
- Dust Bowl Girls (book), A League of Their Own (film), The Mighty Macs (film)
- Hidden Figures (Book), Hidden Figures (film), Twentieth Century Women (film)
- Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH (book), Zootopia (film), The Secrets of NIMH (film)
- A Street Cat Named Bob (book), A Street Cat Named Bob (film), Keanu (film)
