We interrupt our regularly scheduled posts for a quick events round-up.  Lots of cool stuff going on, so save the dates!

  • Jena Osman, author of Public Figures, will be reading in Alumni Auditorium, TODAY, Wednesday at 4pm.  Osman’s book of photos and prose-poems is the common reading for this year’s freshman class.  You can read more about this over at The Blue & Gold.
  • Our first open mic will take place on Oct. 1 at 7pm in University Center, Room C.  Come read your poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, drama…or just listen!
  • The annual Fall Faculty Lecture is planned for Oct. 23 at 4pm in the Drost Room of Wolfgram Library.  Professor Mark Graybill will be giving the lecture, entitled “Disease and Disability in Flannery O’Connor’s Fiction,” in conjunction with his leading of Senior Seminar this fall.
  • Alumnae Emma Ricciardi and Ashley Babcock will be returning to campus on Oct. 29 for the second in our occasional series of career panels.  Emma, a graduate student in Library Science and an intern at the Library Company of Philadelphia, and Ashley, incoming Director of the Writing Center for Montgomery College, will share thoughts on post-college work and life, offer advice, and take questions.  Early evening, exact time TBD.

Hope to see you around!
