The Flying Words Project

The Flying Words Project

Saturday, Feb. 23rd

7:30pm in McCullough Social Space

The Flying Words Project is an American Sign Language (ASL) poetry troupe comprised of Deaf Poet Peter Cook and hearing coauthor Kenny Lerner. The goal of Flying Words is to play with language, which Cook and Lerner accomplish by juxtaposing imagery you can see into their work. By combining both modern and ancient aspect of poetry into their work they produce an unforgettable visceral and visual experience for multicultural audiences. An interpreter will be present.  

Free admission; donations are welcome.

 Organized by The ASL Club

Cosponsored by: Atwater, Brainerd, Cook, Wonnacott Commons; The InterCommons Council; The Office of the Dean of the College; American Studies Spiegel Family Fung; The Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity; Student Accessibility Services Office; English and American Literature Department

United Way of Addison County ‘Days of Caring’

The United Way of Addison County’s 17th annual “Days of Caring” will be Thursday, September 22, and/or Saturday, September 24. Start Thursday with a United Way breakfast provided by the Middlebury American Legion and volunteer at a school or nonprofit agency during the day. If you cannot participate on Thursday, there are plenty of projects that need your attention on Saturday. It’s a great time to volunteer with your family or friends.

As you may recall, Middlebury College is proud to help sponsor this event by providing paid time off (meaning you don’t have to use CTO) if you chose to participate on a day you were normally scheduled to work. To ensure proper operational coverage, please obtain your supervisor’s approval before signing up.

Please check the UWAC website for the most up-to-date information. If you have any questions, please call the United Way office at 802.388.7189.
