12:00pm-1:45pm Coe Library 506

Dr. Suzan Pritchett, Assistant Professor in the College of Law, will facilitate an engaging conversation on Dave Eggers's book What is the What.  Space is limited to 25 registrants.  RSVPs are required.  Click here to secure your spot! 

What Is the What is the epic novel based on the life of Valentino Achak Deng who, along with thousands of other children —the so-called Lost Boys—was forced to leave his village in Sudan at the age of seven and trek hundreds of miles by foot, pursued by militias, government bombers, and wild animals, crossing the deserts of three countries to find freedom. When he finally is resettled in the United States, he finds a life full of promise, but also heartache and myriad new challenges. Moving, suspenseful, and unexpectedly funny, What Is the What is an astonishing novel that illuminates the lives of millions through one extraordinary man (description taken from www.amazon.com).

The Fluidity of Gender:
Sculpture by Linda Stein

Available for viewing in Coe Library.  This exhibit will be hosted in Coe Library for two months.  

The exhibition explores the continuum between the binaries of masculinity and femininity, while inspiring the compassion, empathy and bravery it takes to become an upstander rather than a bystander. HAWT [Have Art: Will Travel! Inc.] asks people to re-invent and visualize bravery for themselves, to look at the armor they wear, the safety they seek. The artist says, “with my androgynous forms, I invite the viewer to seek out diversity in unpredictable ways, to ‘try on’ new personal avatars and self-definitions, knowing that every new experience changes the brain’s structure and inspires each of us to a more authentic self." 

For more information on the exhibit, visit the HAWT website
