Help us celebrate U.S. Constitution Day!

Monday, September 18, Honnold/Mudd Library

If the last time you really thought about the Constitution was senior high government class, visit the Libraries "Constitution Space" to celebrate the US Constitution.. From novice to expert, everyone is welcome. "Constitution Space" will be on the second floor of Honnold/Mudd Library, across from the Services Desk. Events, from 10am to 5pm, include:

- coffee and discussion about the Constitution with American historians Robert Dawidoff (Claremont Graduate University) and Victor Silverman (Pomona) from 2:00 -3:00 PM

- an exhibit of the books of the late constitutional scholar Leonard Levy

- free copies of the Dover Thrift Edition book "The Declaration of Independence and other Great Documents of American History, 1775-1865" (which, of course, includes the Constitution) (while supplies last)

- Constitutional Graffiti (write your own responses on our "response walls" to articles and Constitutional Issues)
