He’s already one of the most revered professors on campus, but Skidmore’s own Steven Millhauser has been even more in the spotlight since his recent nomination for a PEN/Faulkner Award.So there’s no excuse to miss his reading this coming Tuesday, March 6 at 8:00 PM in Palamountain Hall’s Davis Auditorium. Our advice: get there early. This will, no doubt, be a well-attended event!

The next meeting of the Skidmore Literary Society is this coming Monday, March, in Bolton 102 at 8:15 PM. We’ll be discussing upcoming club events, officership for next year, how to make this blog more exciting, and poetry! If you want to, bring in a couple copies of a poem you love. This isn’t mandatory by any means, but would be a great way to share something with the rest of the club. Hope to see you there.
