READ Posters

For the last fifteen years, the University of Wisconsin Law Library has encouraged research and learning through our National Library Week celebration. The most popular of all our National Library Week events has been our "celebrity" READ posters featuring UW Law School faculty and staff. Since we unveiled our first READ poster in 2006, over twenty Law School faculty and staff have been featured, each holding a book that has sparked their interest or that has had an influence in their lives. Book subjects have varied broadly, ranging from contract law to Muslim jurisprudence, from science fiction to shoes, and from mathematical proofs to metaphysical motorcycle journeys. Beginning in 2012, the Law Library has also invited law students, faculty, and staff to celebrate their love of reading with our make-your-own READ posters.  Started by Kris Turner and now created by Jay Tucker, these posters are a popular way to commemorate the UW Law School experience. We are pleased to showcase our collection here in the Digital Repository.  Here's to many more years to come!
