CHASS Interdisciplinary South, Round Lab, INTS 1111
Free and open to the campus
Hear UCR undergraduates, graduate students, faculty writers, alumni, and community members read works of resistance as part of the Writers Resist movement across the nation. This is a major literary protest and show of strength that began just before the January 2017 Presidential inauguration to signal that all eyes, ears and pens are trained on Washington.
