It’s a marathon reading, starting at 9:30. Everyone is invited to stop by and participate. Eclipse glasses and apples will be on hand as the sky darkens. See the write-up in Rutgers Today. Spread the word, bring your friends, join the festivities.

     “As when the Sun new ris’n
    Looks through the Horizontal misty Air
    Shorn of his Beams, or from behind the Moon
    In dim Eclips disastrous twilight sheds…
    Dark’n’d so, yet shone
    Above them all the’ Arch Angel…”
