The Anoka-Ramsey Community College English Division is pleased to announce its first event in the spring 2013 Two Rivers Reading Series at the Coon Rapids Campus:

St. Paul’s Penumbra Theatre Company Reading/Discussion
Spunk, a play
Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013
1 to 1:50 and again
2 to 2:50 p.m.
Coon Rapids Campus Legacy Room

This event is free and open to the public.

Spunk by George Wolfe is an adaptation of three short stories by Zora Neale Hurston. Though much-awarded in the early decades of the twentieth century, Hurston’s work dwindled into obscurity until Alice Walker in the 1970s led a charge to revive it. Since then, Hurston’s work has been lauded for its portrayal of strong black women and its themes of identity and place.

In addition to the campus-Penumbra event, the long-term partnership between the college and Penumbra affords Anoka-Ramsey students an opportunity to attend a subsidized performance of the play Sunday, March 24, including transportation to and from campus and a presentation from Penumbra Education Director Sarah Bellamy before the performance.

More About the Two Rivers Reading Series
The Anoka-Ramsey’s Two Rivers Reading Series provides student access to award-winning authors, poets and playwrights each semester and makes learning more comprehensive by combining classwork with real-world experiences.

“The series offers our students the unique experience of studying an author’s book in class and then attending a presentation,” notes college English Faculty member Paige Riehl. “Students have immersed themselves in the text and come to the events excited to listen, ask questions, and learn.”
