The Robert Longwell Grice Chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) at the University of Delaware will host the spoken-word poet Sarah Kay at 7 p.m., Monday, May 4, in the Pearson Hall auditorium.
Kay is well known for her TED Talks, including “How Many Lives Can You Live?” at TEDxEast: Tinker, Noodle, Obsess in 2011, and “If I Should Have a Daughter” at the TED Conference in Long Beach, California, in March 2011.
“Sarah Kay serves as a symbol of empowerment and finding one’s voice, which can be difficult for students on a large college campus,” says William Rehrig, NRHH chapter president. “We’re very excited to host our first large-scale campus programming event by bringing an internationally renowned speaker.”
SPIT (Stimulating Prose Ideas and Theories), one of the University’s registered student organizations, will open the event at 6:30 p.m. SPIT is a student-run slam poetry organization, which offers students a platform to creatively express ideas that matter to them.
