Sant Jordi at Hood College


On April 23rd, from 12:30 to 2:30 pm, in the Coblentz Seminar room, the Global Languages and Cultures Department at Hood College will celebrate Sant Jordi, a Catalan joyful tradition that honors literature, diversity, books, love, friendship, and roses. The main event will take place from 1 pm to 2 pm, to allow students and faculty to come, eat, and participate.

The event will have 3 components:

  1. BRING A BOOK that you love and that you would like to exchange with somebody else. Go back home with a new and exciting reading!
  2. OPEN-MIC READING. If you wish, read a poem or an excerpt of your favorite author’s work in any language that is dear to your heart.
    a. In English, briefly present your excerpt or poem to the audience. Why did you choose it?
    b. Enjoy reading it in the language of your preference : )
    c. All together (short introduction + reading), it shouldn’t last more than 3 minutes, to allow as many people as possible to participate.
  3. Socialize, listen, read… and GET A ROSE! while eating LIGHT REFRESHMENTS.
