September Project is Official
Apologies for the recent silence here. I’ve been swept away by the first few weeks of classes here at Georgia Tech. In fact, in just a few short days, I’ll have a huge stack of papers to grade (in other news, coffeehouses across Decatur should expect to see increased profits next month).
I’ve also been working on putting together a September Project event here in Atlanta, and I’ve finally managed to confirm a location, the Peachtree Branch of the Atlanta Public Library, 1315 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta (near 16th Street). The event will run from 3-5:30 PM. Some of the speakers I’ve contacted are still tentative, but my major goal for the afternoon is to encourage everyone to participate.
Here’s a little more information about The September Project:
On September 11, 2004, Atlanta residents will come to the library to share and discuss their ideas about citizenship, democracy, and patriotism, in conjunction with a national event called the September Project. Hundreds of libraries across the country and around the world will be participating.
In Atlanta, September Project events include a Roundtable Discussion scheduled for 3:00-5:30 PM on Saturday, September 11. The event will be held at the Peachtree Branch of the Atlanta Public Library, 1315 Peachtree St NE.
The September Project is a collection of people, groups, and organizations working to create a day of engagement, a day of conversation, a day of democracy.
