Every season has its own unique and special beauty. Is autumn your favorite time of the year? What are your favorite activities in this season? Fall Poetry Reading is one of our favorite activities in the autumn season. We are excited to let you know that our beloved and popular poetry reading is back this year. We will be having the AsiaConnect Fall 2020 Poetry Reading on Friday, November 6, 2020. The event starts from 12 to 1 p.m. on Zoom. We have several Illinois State University members who participated in our #AsiaConnect Poetry Reading already and they can’t wait to share their love of poetry in their native languages. This is going to be fun! We are excited and look forward to seeing you at the event.
