Kent Library's Athenaeum Lecture Series will present "The Case for Strangeness: A Pilgrim's Guide to Navigating the Liminal" at noon on Wednesday, March 27, in Sadie's Place in Kent Library. The presentation will be given by Kris Baranovic, instructional design specialist in Southeast's Center for Scholarship in Teaching and Learning (CSTL).
