Paradise Lost: A Reading Marathon

On Friday, February 8th, 2013, the largest blizzard of the season wasn’t enough to deter a hardy group of undergraduates, graduate students, and professors from gathering in McCosh Hall for Prof. Russ Leo’s challenge: a marathon reading of Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost. With the Hinds Library packed to capacity, the reading got underway at 6pm and continued…until 4 o’clock in the morning, when a devoted band of readers emerged to find a snowy world was all before them.
