A Personal Invitation from the Department Chair to Wednesday’s Event

You may have heard that we have decided to celebrate the successful residency of Edward P. Jones in GW’s English Department with neither a bang nor whisper, but with what might be called a whispered bang.

Admittedly that does not sound right.

So let’s just say that we are holding an event that does not attempt to fill a three hundred seat auditorium. We have not invited the president. Indeed if Knapp shows up we will shoo him away. We’ve asked Edward P. Jones to read from his short stories. We’ve reserved an intimate venue: Phillips 411 (Academic Center). We hope that you will join us on Wednesday 4/22 at 5 PM. This is the last event of the residency … and we want you to join us in savoring it.

See you soon.
