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.
