As Leo Tolstoy wrote in his classic novel Anna Karenina, “Spring is the time of plans and projects.” This spring semester, Falvey Memorial Library’s Scholarly Outreach Team is bringing Tolstoy’s words to life by feverishly planning a bolstering schedule of events.
Students, faculty and staff can expect a plethora of workshops, lectures, open houses, meetings and even leisurely events to take place in Falvey almost every day of the school week! Some highlights include a book signing by Susan Nussbaum, author of this year’s One Book Villanova selection, Good Kings, Bad Kings; two Literary Festival talks, featuring authors David Gilbert and Adelle Waldman; our annual Black History talk; our three Scholarship@Villanova talks featuring Villanova faculty members James W. Wilson, PhD, C. Nataraj, PhD, and Lynne Hartnett, PhD; the annual Pope John Paul II Legacy Lecture featuring former Villanova professor D.C. Schindler, PhD; an Open Mic Poetry Reading; a celebration in honor of Earth Day; and our 2014 Falvey Scholars Awards presentation and reception. Also, some of our regularly scheduled events include VSB peer-tutoring sessions in the Learning Commons every Tuesday and Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m. and the Villanova Electronic Enthusiasts Club (VEEC) meetings on many Friday afternoons throughout the semester. Make sure to stop by the Library to participate in these events!
In addition to the events that the Library plans, Falvey also serves as a host site for events that are organized by other departments and groups from all across campus. Villanova faculty, staff and representatives from official student groups are able to request a space for their event or meeting by filling out the Events Request Form or by directly contacting Regina Duffy, library events and program coordinator. Event locations include the Speakers’ Corner, Learning Commons Rooms on the second floor (204 and 205) and the first-floor lounge.
