The fifth annual Bread and Words poetry reading was held at the Chattanooga State Kimball Site on Nov. 20. Bread and Words is an open-mike poetry reading held in celebration of the Thanksgiving season. 

Students, faculty and staff bring homemade soups and bread to share at the event, as well as non-perishable food items to donate to the Marion County Food Bank. The event is organized by Wes Jarrett, associate professor of English and sponsored by the Marion County Rotaract Club. This year the students donated 556 food items while the Rotoract Club delivered the food to the Marion County Food Bank. There were 22 students who read both published and original poems, and there were 60 students in attendance.
