Public Reading of Paradise Lost

Immerse yourself in an epic adventure--the Fall 2022 public reading of John Milton's Paradise Lost! Instructors, students, staff, and all interested members of the public are cordially invited to join us. Come and go throughout the day on November 24th, or stay for the whole 12-hour experience! Each of the 12 books will begin promptly on the hour. Light refreshments will be available throughout the day.

This event is made possible by President Jeff Keshen's support and championing of vibrant experiential learning and the public humanities. Special guest Dr. David Barnard (former University of Regina President and University of Manitoba President Emeritus) will reprise his role as Narrator, performing over the entire course of the 12-hour event.

If you've always wanted to read Paradise Lost, now is your chance! Experience the dramatic language, energy, and cultural power of Milton's masterpiece by hearing it performed with all the epic weight and poignancy of its narrative. You are invited to drop in, or stay for the day, as your plans permit.
