APSU celebrates 10 years of Bread and Words Nov. 23

The department of languages and literature will host its 10th annual Bread and Words benefit Tuesday, Nov. 23, in the UC Ballroom.
The event has been held for the past 10 years as a way to help feed the hungry in our community, says Susan Wallace, editorial assistant for Zone 3, APSUs literary magazine. In the past few years, we have had about 100 people attend, and we have raised in the vicinity of $600–all of which has gone to the Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen and food pantry here in Clarksville.
