UMD to Host Marathon Reading of John Milton's "Paradise Lost"
April 27
Public Invited to Participate

Students from UMD Assistant English Professor Paul Cannan's Seminar on Milton will host a marathon reading of Milton's "Paradise Lost" on Saturday, April 27 in the UMD Kirby Student Center room 351. The reading will begin at 9 a.m. and run to ???--until the work is completed.

Everyone will take turns reading John Milton's epic aloud in its entirety. (The 1999 Milton Marathon took about nine hours.)

Anyone interested is invited to stop by on April 27th and contribute the reading of a line, passage, or book; or to just come to listen and cheer them on. Reading texts will be provided.

Any questions, please email Paul Cannan at
