The Literary League volunteered at the Lincoln City Libraries Book Sale last fall.
One of our favorite events of the 2012-2013 school year had to be the "Princess Bride" Book Talk and Movie.
In the spirit of Halloween, we took a trip to Roca Scary farm in October 2012.
"Cocoa and Dickens" was the Literary League's winter event where we dressed up in ugly sweaters, drank hot chocolate, and discussed Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."
Dr. Laura White gave a presentation on the Victorian Era during our Downton Abbey season finale showing in spring 2013.
Upon reinventing Literary League during the 2011-2012 school year, the organization hosted an event featuring UNL professor and poet Ted Kooser.
Ted Kooser served as the U.S. Poet Laureate from 2004-2006.
Many students filled a room in the Union to hear Ted Kooser speak.
The Literary League - formerly known as the Undergraduate English Organization - is comprised of and open to any UNL student interested in reading, writing, joining an RSO/becoming more involved on campus, interacting with others with similar interests, looking for distinguishing additions to one's curriculum vitae, meeting new people, going to English-related events, and having a grand old time with the field of English in general. Some events we have hosted include philanthropic book drives, class reviews, guest speakers such as Pulitzer prize winner Ted Kooser, poetry slams, movies, and much more. Our meetings are held once a month, and food is always provided. One need not be an English major, or even an English minor, to join. More information available by joining the Lit. League Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/groups/litleague/) and via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Join us on Facebook and get connected today!
