Awareness: 2nd Annual A Day Without Shoes
Location: Rhatigan Student Center North Patio

Free your toes today in support of Office of Multicultural Affairs "A Day Without Shoes!" Millions of children live without shoes. Many are exposed to injury and disease each day, and are not allowed to go to school without shoes.

Join the Office of Multicultural Affairs as we go one day without shoes to raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on one's life by going without.

The day of awareness will begin at 11:00 a.m. by dropping your shoes off with us outside of the RSC at the North Patio. Individuals can pick their shoes up by 2:00 p.m. Leave your footprint on campus as we raise awareness on social inequality!

From the accidental fatal shooting of his brother at age 12 to harrowing moments during the civil rights movement in Mississippi, Guggenheim Fellowship recipient and acclaimed author Gregory Orr pulls from a number of life-altering moments to write eight books of poetry, four volumes of criticism and a memoir that describes transformation.

Poetry editor of the Virginia Quarterly Review and a faculty member in the University of Virginia's MFA Program, Orr has been a Rockefeller Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Culture and Violence and has received National Endowment for his poetry fellowships and the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature. National Public Radio broadcast his essay in its "This I Believe" series. This year Orr celebrates the publication of River Inside the River.

Writing Now/Reading Now is co-sponsored with the WSU Department of English, University Libraries and Watermark Books & Cafe.
