One Book, One UIS: We are eagerly looking forward to the One Book, One UIS events this year. MARCH, a graphic memoir about the life of civil rights icon John Lewis, has been chosen as the campus community read for the 2015/2016 academic year. Congressman Lewis, co-author Andrew Aydin and Illustrator Nate Powell have agreed to speak at the University of Illinois Springfield in conjunction with the program.
Their presentation will be on Monday, October 19 at 7:00 in Sangamon Auditorium. Tickets (FREE) are required for the event and can be acquired through the Sangamon Auditorium in person or by calling the Sangamon Auditorium Ticket Office at 217-206-6160.
As part of the overall One Book, One UIS Program we have created Book Discussion Groups or Book Clubs. We have 4 different dates and times available for you to choose from. Slots are limited to 12 per section to be sure to sign up early. Participants will receive a free copy of MARCH Book One. Sign up today!
