A reminder that this Monday evening the English Department will be sponsoring a panel discussion, FICTION AND SURVIVAL: IMAGINATION, MIGRATION, AND DIASPORA, featuring Nadeem Aslam, H. G. Carrillo, and Joanne Leedom-Ackerman.
Nadeem Aslam is our inaugural British Council U.K. Writer in Residence; H. G. Carrillo teaches Creative Writing here at GW; Joanne Leedom-Ackerman is a novelist and writer who is a Vice President and former International Secretary of PEN International, an organization which endeavors to assist oppressed writers in terms of both personal survival and free expression. Professor Judith Plotz of the GW English Department will be moderating the panel.
The panel will begin at 8 PM in the Marvin Center Amphitheatre, Monday Feb. 25. It is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.
Please come both to listen and to ask your questions of these articulate, informed, and committed individuals. And please spread the word.
See you there! — David McAleavey
