Federal court plans public reading of U.S. Constitution

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee will host a public reading of the U.S. Constitution to celebrate Constitution Day Friday, Sept. 15.

The court will hold the event on the steps of the Joel W. Solomon Federal Building (900 Georgia Avenue), 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

The public is welcome to join the court and local bar associations in commemorating the document that form the bedrock of their nation. Participants will read the Constitution in 110 segments that take one minute or less to read.

Participants do not have to arrive at 11:30 a.m. to read; they may arrive at any time during the event, as long as readings remain available. Readings will primarily be assigned on a first-come, first-filled basis.
