Story Week is serious loss

By Letter to the Editor, by Mary Lou Wade

What disappointing news! The end of Story Week, the institution that represented the best of Columbia and the most successful outreach program ever!

My South Loop friends and neighbors attended the stimulating readings and lectures. They thanked me, as a representative of Columbia, for the professional and educational presentations.

For many of the 19 years I would bring students from my Oral Expression classes to learn of literature and to observe speech techniques of writers, editors and moderators.

Story Week’s termination is a serious loss to our college, our neighborhood and our city.
