Elie Wiesel Coming To Illinois State University

I am incredibly excited to announce Elie Wiesel is coming to Illinois State University!  Mr. Wiesel has written many works, but his book Night seems to resonate the most profoundly among people.  I’ve taught Night on several occasions and recommended it to multitudes; I’ve never had anyone express disappointment in the book and many even reported their lives changed for the better after having read it.

I’d like to congratulate Toni Tucker at Milner Library for securing this living legend and I urge all of you to make it to Mr. Wiesel’s event.

Here are the details as taken from the event’s FACEBOOK invite:
