After students burn an author's books on campus, the Student Government Association will host an open forum.

STATESBORO — Georgia Southern University's Student Government Association will host an open forum on Wednesday, Oct. 16 in the Russell Union Ballroom.

President Kyle Marrero will be present at the open forum, which was created in light of events on campus this past week.

A group of students that attended Jennine Capó Crucet's lecture on Wednesday burned her book,  Make Your Home Among Strangers, in an on-campus grill outside Eagle Village.

"If you have ANY form of opinion or suggestion, you need to be here," SGA President Juwan Smith said in a tweet.

The open forum will start at 6:30 p.m. More information regarding the incident can accessed here.
