Multilingual Poetry Reading and International Dessert Reception

Cornell's Language Resource Center invites you to attend a mulitlingual poetry reading and international dessert reception at the Johnson Museum of Art. The objective of this event is to raise awareness of the Shared Course Initiative (SCI), Cornell's collaboration with Yale and Columbia to share instruction in the less commonly taught languages (LCTLs) via videoconference. Several teachers will be joining us from Columbia and all the poems will be read by students. The event will also be a celebration of National Poetry Month in April.
