Stay in the GW English Loop: October Events

September was a whirlwind of a month, complete with starting new classes and welcoming new members to the GW English community.
The English department hosted and participated in a number of exciting events in September, including Brando Skyhorse’s first reading, Amy Bloom’s reading and the Dean’s Scholars in Shakespeare Annual lecture. It was great seeing so many new and familiar faces at all of these events and we hope to continue seeing GW students, faculty and staff at our events this October!
This page will serve as a one-stop shop for all upcoming GW English events in October, as well as local events that might be of interest to English students. Throughout the month this page will be regularly updated with event details, so be sure to check here for all of your GW English Event needs!
