At the Bread and Words event at Chattanooga State’s Kimball site, held on Tuesday, Nov. 22, students read their favorite poems as an exhibition of their creative freedom of expression. Twenty students participated in the open mic event, which allowed students to read their favorite poem, or a piece of their own original work.
Faculty and staff from the Kimball site were also on hand and shared some of their favorite poems. Wes Jarrett, assistant professor of English at Chattanooga State’s Kimball site, served as emcee of the event.
The event featured a potluck meal of soup and bread for all in attendance to share. “Bread and Words provided students an opportunity to share their creativity and enjoy bread and soup at the Kimball site,” said Mr. Jarrett.
The Bread and Words event also raised money and food donations to benefit the Marion County Food Bank for the Thanksgiving season.This was the fourth annual “Bread and Words” event hosted by Chattanooga State’s Kimball site.
