Do it Tonight: Ransom Riggs Reading

Book on the left, author on the right.

In case you missed the giant poster in Peirce, you might have no idea who Ransom Riggs is. Well, he’s a man. This man is also a writer and a Kenyon graduate. Student Lectureships has organized an event for Ransom Riggs to read from his new novel, Hollow City: The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine’s Children. There will be an introduction by P.F. Kluge, curmudgeon-in-residence. The reading will be followed by  a question-and-answer session. Unlike the John Green event, there are no tickets. But if you are feeling rather corrupt/creative today, you could make your own tickets and start selling them. It’s like the old elevator pass prank.  

  • What: Ransom Riggs Reading
  • Where: Rosse Hall
  • When: 7:30 p.m.

It sits in the grass day in and day out, largely unnoticed except by the occasional student who perches atop it to study (a practice made famous in Liberal Arts). But why is a slowly-disintegrating piece of stone, which began its life proudly sitting atop Rosse’s left column, sitting on the lawn between Rosse and Olin nearly 200 years after the building was erected?
