The 15th annual Spoon River College coffeehouse
event, The Coffee Spoon, will be held on Tuesday, April 22, from 1-2:30 p.m. in
the drama theatre in Taylor Hall on the Canton Campus, and on Wednesday, April
23 from 1-2:30 p.m. on the Macomb Campus.
“This is a fun and unique way to showcase the
talent of our students and employees, and is something I look forward to
organizing every year,” said Paige Edwards, graphic designer at Spoon River
College and coordinator for the event.
The Coffee Spoon will feature literary readings
that have been published in the 2013-14 Kaleidoscope
Journal of Art and Literature, a student publication featuring short
stories, poems, essays, song lyrics, photography and fine art that will be
distributed during the Coffee Spoon.
“We also encourage impromptu readings and musical
selections,” said Edwards. “It’s a funky and informal atmosphere. I try to
recreate the coffee houses of the 1960s.”
This event is free and open to the public, and a
variety of flavored coffees are provided. For more information about the event,

year’s Kaleidoscope may contact the
