Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I learn more about Jericho Brown?

In the age of the internet, there's tons of ways to learn more about Jericho Brown. We'll be introducing Jericho Brown and his work on Instagram Takeovers throughout Spring Quarter at @allthingsrevelle, but you can check out a few cool interviews and podcasts to get a head start:

I'm a little shy. How do I build my confidence to lead or participate in a conversation?

We're hosting two workshops to help you create that foundation to facilitate or participate in a discussion group! Professor Antony Lyon will be going over strategies and walking through a close reading of a poem as an example. Take the opportunity to ask questions and build that confidence.

Where can I connect others to find a reading group?

Utilize your Revelle community! Ask your friends if they have mutuals, take the plunge and ask the person sitting next to you in class, or reach out to us on Instagram at @allthingsrevelle to see if we can link you up. You can also ask your Revelle leaders like your Orientation Leader, Resident Assistant, or organization chair. They may already have a discussion group going or can connect you with another member in the organization.

Three conversation circles will also be led by Ashley Samaan, one of our Humanities Peer Tutor Co-coordinators!

Registrations appreciated, but feel free to just drop by.

I don't know if I'll have time to read the entire book, but I still want to be involved.

The Tradition is naturally divided into three acts, but you can pick and choose poems throughout the collection that resonate with you and your group. There is no singular way to read a work; the most important thing is to connect and discuss, whether it's one poem, one act, or one book.

Where can I reserve space for my reading group?

If meeting up at Mandeville Coffee Cart or Revelle Plaza isn't your cup of tea, you can find spaces at:

  • Geisel Library
  • WongAvery Library (previously, Biomedical)
  • Revelle College Center
  • Revelle Residents
    • Blake 4 Lounge
    • Argo Lounges
    • Fleet Lounges
    • Keeling Building 1 Lounge
    • Keeling Building 3 Lounge
    • Keeling Rooftop
  • Ridge Walk Academic Complex Floor 5

Are there additional reading resources available?

There's a civic dialogue edition of The Tradition coming out, but other programs have also created reading guides or may serve as helpful resources:
