    What is Final Fridays?

    Final Fridays provides an informal opportunity to hear a few Quality Speakers™ from EIU speak about their exciting projects and creative accomplishments in a quick and accessible way: 10 minutes maximum for each speaker. We gather informally starting @ 4pm, and after some time to socialize, we enjoy listening our Quality Speakers™. By 5:30 or so, we’ve wrapped up, but folks are invited to stay to continue the conversation.


    Who is speaking this month?

    Robin Murray will try to explain how it’s possible that she’s published six books with academic presses inside a decade. David K. Smith will outline for us the exciting events EIU has in store for the commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the beginnings of the North Atlantic Slave Trade. Grace Wilken will illuminate her collaborative (and award-winning!) project to introduce composting on EIU’s campus.

     

    Who is welcome?

    Anyone curious about EIU. While we love to see EIU’s faculty and administrative types, we especially welcome folks from the community who would just like to get to know what’s happening on EIU’s campus.

    Sponsored by EIU's Faculty Development and Innovation Center and the Center for the Humanities

    Kevin and Paul Baumann, brothers, are very knowledgeable about local cemeteries and have visited many other cemeteries in their travels internationally. They will start the day with a PowerPoint presentation on Tombstone Art. In the afternoon, Roselawn-Mound Cemetery and Old City Cemetery will be toured, with Paul and Kevin as guides. One just might hear bagpipes in the background and see re-enactments of moments in the life of pioneers who lived long ago. In case of rain, we will meet back in the library (after lunch on your own) for afternoon stories of art in the lives of those who lived here in Coles County long ago.

    This event offered through a collaboration of:  Coles County Arts Council, Academy of Lifelong Learning, Coles County Historical Society and Coles County Genealogical Society

    Registration required by 9/23 at 581-5114.  $10 per person.  16 and under N/C.
