Constitution Readers (and Listeners) Needed on October 3

Every year, at the start of autumn quarter, the UW community gathers for a public noontime reading of the U.S. Constitution. It's simple. It's inspirational.
The goal is one hundred readers, each reading about five sentences, and as many listeners as possible. The entire event lasts 75-minutes, but readers and listeners are free to come and go. You don't need to do anything other than sign up and show up.

Sharp blog readers might wonder why this is happening next week, rather than last week, on the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution.  UW is not in session on September 17 and this event needs the entire community – students, faculty, and staff to show up, participate, read, listen, and learn.

WHEN: Thursday, October 3, 2013, 12:00 - 1:15pm
WHERE: Outside the Suzzallo Library Main Reading Room (3rd Floor, Suzzallo Library)
QUESTIONS: E-mail Government Publications
READER SIGN-UP: Via the web
