A group of critically acclaimed writers of diverse racial, ethnic, linguistic and cultural backgrounds will read from their works during the annual “Voices of the Rainbow: Celebrating the Oral Tradition” series at Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus.

Monday, April 19, 12 p.m. in the Humanities Building, second floor LG, spotlighted will be Susan Choi & Patrick Rosal. Choi is the critically acclaimed author of three novels, including “The Foreign Student,” “American Woman” (a Pulitzer finalist) and, most recently, “A Person of Interest,” whose protagonist is an Asian-American mathematician accused of murdering a colleague.

A writer of Filipino heritage, Patrick Rosal wrote the award-winning poetry collections “Uprock Headspin Scramble and Dive” and “My American Kundiman.”

Started in 1993, the series is funded by the Office of the Provost and is free and open to the public.

Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus is at One University Plaza at the intersection of Flatbush and DeKalb Avenues. For information, call 718-488-1050 or visit
