While the month of March has left many Villanovans with busted brackets and broken hearts, have no fear—Falvey has plenty of events in April to bring you out of your dark rut. The Library is busy planning a diverse series of events ranging from scholarly and distinguished to leisurely and interactive to prevent you from having too much time to wallow in the recent NCAA loss.

As usual, regular Villanova Electronic Enthusiast Club meetings will take place most Fridays from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in the first floor lounge. The VEEC is a social club, focused on recreation and relaxation. Participants gather once a week to play video games in a safe and fun environment. The VEEC also has the pleasure of participating in video game activities, such as tournaments and expositions, and is always accepting new members!

Are you a budding writer interested in sharing your work? Be sure to join us on April 18th from 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. in Speakers’ Corner as we hold the annual Open Mic Poetry Reading event to read a favorite poem or excerpt from a treasured short story. You can share a work that you’ve written or from an author you enjoy—or—you can simply relax and listen to others! Later in the month, the English department returns to co-sponsor the final 2017 Literary Festival talk featuring Jennifer Haigh. The event will take place on Thursday, April 20th at 7 pm in Speakers’ Corner.

Closing out the month we have two prestigious scholarly events: First up is the 2017 Outstanding Faculty Award Lecture featuring Paul L. Danove, PhD, STL, MDiv, BS, professor of New Testament Studies on Monday April 24th at 1:00 p.m. in the Idea Accelerator, located on the ground level of Falvey. Dr. Danove’s talk is titled “Semantic and Narrative Study of the Bible.” He will discuss some discoveries of his research on the Greek grammar of the Bible and his narrative studies of Mark’s Gospel. Finally, the Falvey Scholars Awards Presentation and Reception Ceremony is set to take on Friday, April 28th from 9:00 a.m. -12:30 p.m. in room 205. This ceremony is one of the keynote events of EXPO ’17 week, which recognizes outstanding undergraduate research from across Villanova’s campus. At this event, award recipients will give short presentations on the content and findings of the research involved in the writing of the thesis or in the creation of the project report.
