The English Club is for anyone who loves to read, write, and learn! You DO NOT have to be an English Major to join the English Club! As a club we like to hold events and go on trips that revolve around our love for books. As a club, every year, we go to the Poe House in Philadelphia as well as trips to NYC with the Art Bus.
Not only do we like to go on trips to hear authors speak and to learn more about their work, but we also like to bring published authors to our Kutztown campus. In the past we have had poetry readings, book signings, and Q/A opportunities with award-winning authors. When it comes to community service and our passion to share our love of books, we have teamed up with Better World Books to help promote literacy around the world. The club also participates in the Merchant Trick-or-Treat event each Halloween.
In a collaborative effort, The English Club works with Shoofly to offer a high school poetry contest. Winners are announced at the Lehigh Valley Vanguard Young Writer’s Festival.
The English Club meets every Tuesday from 11-12 p.m. in Lytle Hall 206. Members of the English Club are encouraged to join Sigma Tau Delta which is an English Honors Society. We have had members attend Sigma Tau Delta conferences (being a member of Sigma Tau Delta opens the door for conferences, internships, publishing, and scholarship opportunities!)
