Marathon Read returns to Pattee Mall!

The readings explore the complex challenges of climate change and its effects on environments, economies, and cultures. The list also aims to illustrate the joys that can arise from pursuing sustainability through individual action.

Marathon Read is free and open to the public. Participants are invited to read out loud for 5-minute intervals. Special guests will  also  join the reading throughout the day.  Food will be provided during the morning,  around midday , and after the sun goes down.
