The library will have a display of student-created Libros Cartoneros, books in Spanish focused on sustainability. The Cardboard Books and Climate Change Project, Cambio Climático Cartonera, was made possible with the support of Labs Across the Curriculum and the close collaboration between Beloit College with UW-Madison's Ibero-American Studies Collection at Memorial Library. The project was completed in Professor Gabriela Cergheden's Spanish 210 classes over three semesters: Spring 2017, Fall 2017,and Spring 2018.
Logan Museum: the permanent Cube exhibit.
Men on Boats. Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men On Boats is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition when a one-armed captain and a crew of loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. While the characters in Men on Boats were historically cisgender white males, this cast is made up entirely of people who aren’t. The play runs November 8 - 10 and 15 - 17. Event Admission Fee: Student $5, Senior $7, General $10. BTYB: The Theatre Department. Location: Neese Theatre
Bon Appetit! Be sure to try the variety of international cuisine that Bon Appetit will be serving this week. Consider offering up your favorite recipe from home or volunteering to be a guest chef in Commons. The experience is sure to remind you of places far away or of home.
