Xavier to host 2nd Evanswood Festival in Spring of ‘08

As many of us will recall, a brand new event called the Evanswood Festival was hosted by Xavier University on their campus in September of 2006, September 30 to be exact. Our own recollection from the publicity, billed as an idea that came from the Evanston-Norwood-Xavier (ENX) Leadership Academy, was that the Evanswood Festival was intended to be an annual event. Hoping to get some advance information about this year’s schedule, we made a call to Xavier recently and were referred to a Mr. Picket Slater Harrington (a charming man whose last name is “Slater Harrington” without the hyphen) with X.U.’s Community Building Institute. He told us there will be another Evanswood Festival, but it has been delayed until Spring, 2008. No date has been established yet, but we will stay in touch with Mr. Slater Harrington to get details as they become available. Click here for all the activities the 1st Evanswood Festival offered.
