Gwendolyn Brooks Centennial Celebrations at Furious Flower (2017)

As part of our month-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of Gwendolyn Brooks’ birth, Furious Flower dedicates a bench and hosts a read-in in her honor. Join us outside our JMU offices for poetry, remembrances of Brooks (to whom the center itself is dedicated), and light refreshments.

For this event, guest parking without a permit is available in lot R8 (adjacent to Cardinal House) from 3:30 to 5:00. All parking regulations for JMU students, faculty and staff will remain in effect, and students attending the event are required to park in appropriate student parking lots with a JMU parking permit.

Regular enforcement will continue in other parking lots, and you may receive a parking citation if parked in restricted lots. Parking is prohibited in specialty spaces such as Service Vehicle spaces, handicap spaces without proper permit, or expired meters. Parking is also prohibited in Fire Lanes.
