Roesch Library to Host ‘PK Night’

By Katy Kelly

University of Dayton's Roesch Library will host the 32nd installment of PechaKucha Dayton, a quarterly idea-sharing party and networking event, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17.  Presenters will discuss topics around the evening's theme, “collections." The event is free, but donations to PK Dayton, the volunteer organizing team, are accepted to offset the cost of rented furniture. There will be a cash bar, and parking is free.

PechaKucha, pronounced Pe - Chak - cha, Japanese for “chit chat,” is a fast-paced style of presenting using 20 slides discussed for 20 seconds each.

Approximately 10 people from the community will present. Kayla Harris, a librarian and archivist in the University of Dayton’s Marian Library, will discuss apparitions and apparitions collections.

Other topics include bug collecting, adventures in self-storage and minimalism.

PechaKucha was devised in Tokyo in February 2003. Dayton is one of 800 official PK cities. PK Night in Dayton occurs four times a year, and each event typically attracts about 300 attendees.
