Eminent philosopher Peter Singer will be joining us to kick off our UConn Reads programming next week.

“No Dilemma for Vegans: A Response to Pollan”

Thursday, October 9th, at 7:00 pm, at the Jorgensen Center

The Jorgensen will be open at 6:00 pm for classes only and 6:30 for the general public.

Tickets are not required: this event is free and open to the public.

The UConn Reads Steering Committee would like to encourage faculty to require their classes to attend this event.  Interested faculty can reserve priority seating for their classes by emailing Kathleen.mcdermott@uconn.edu in the Provost’s Office as soon as possible.  We will have a check-in desk set up in the Jorgensen lobby, and faculty are welcome to email a class roster to Kathy McDermott to facilitate student check-in.
