Most readers of this blog know that the GW English Department has been off to a great start this semester, with a range of successful events. If you follow us on Facebook (and if you don’t, you should!–check out how easy it is with the button on the right side of this page), you also saw some of the photos from Tom Mallon’s discussion of Watergate: A Novel on September 12.
The GW Office of Alumni Relations hosted this event, and their photos of the evening are available here:
The gathering was at the Alumni House in Foggy Bottom, and was attended by more than 30 alumni and friends. Dean Peg Barratt and GW English Department Chair Robert McRuer introduced Professor Mallon, who provided extensive insight into his selection of characters for Watergate: A Novel, as well as his perspective on writing historical fiction. The event was a great opportunity to showcase the accomplishments of our faculty to both the English and GW alumni community. The discussion was preceded by a reception and included a book signing.
Enjoy the pictures, join us for all the great events coming up, and don’t forget to pick up Professor Mallon’s novel in paperback, when it is released this coming January!
