The joint Occupation Haiku and Elixir reading and reception will take place Tuesday, April 24, at 5:30 p.m. in the Library Quiet Zone.
The event is the culmination of the fourth annual Occupation Haiku Contest hosted by the School of Occupational Therapy and the Department of Humanities to celebrate National Occupational Therapy Month and National Poetry Month.
These poems use the traditional 5-7-5 syllable verse form of the haiku to capture a moment of human occupation or daily life and suggest its significance.
Betty Hasselkus, internationally known occupational therapy and science scholar, judged the entries along with Sandy Brim and Kathryn Locey. Read more on the Occupation Haiku Contest flyer (PDF).
