Burning Swamp usually takes place at Eagle Creek Brewing Company in downtown Statesboro, but will be moved to outside the Newton Building next week. 

STATESBORO — The writing and linguistics department at Georgia Southern University will be hosting a reading series on Monday, Oct. 21st from 4-5 on the walking pathways behind the Newton Building.

Professor Benjamin Drevlow, host of this reading series event, said that it is normally held once a month at Eagle Creek Brewery, but changed the location due to the national week on writing.

“With the recent controversy over burning books, we have decided to make the theme “Rising From the Ashes” and call this one “UnBurning Swamp” to emphasize the importance of books and authors,” Drevlow said. “Georgia Southern has a thriving community of student writers who take risks themselves and support authors like Jennine Capó Crucet who are willing to take risks to stand up for what they believe in and share it with the rest of us.”

"...and support authors like Jennine Capó Crucet..."

In other words, the event is open only to left-wing ideologues who are just as deranged as Mrs. Crucet. mmm-kay.
