|English Department hosts Homecoming events|
Yes, there is life after majoring in English! Find out what UND alumni are doing with their English degrees. You may be surprised! Please join us for free homemade chili and cornbread at noon Friday, Oct. 17, from noon to 1 p.m. at the International Center, 2908 University Ave.
Sharon Rezac Anderson, former International Centre director, will return to campus to moderate the panel which includes Jennifer Thorson (B.A., ‘93), vice president in AIG’s Private Client Group, New York City; John Michael Lerma (B.A.’89), author of Garden County: Where Everyone is Welcome to Sit at the Table and Garden County Pie: Sweet and Savory Delights From the Table of John Michael Lerma; and Emily Tobin (’06), former VISTA volunteer and a freelance writer.
On Saturday, following the parade and before the football game, take part in a unique form of “tale-gating” on the grounds of the North Dakota Museum of Art. Students, alumni, and faculty will read creative writing from the back of a pick-up truck belonging to department chair Sherry O’Donnell as we fire up the grill. Poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction on any topic -- keep your odes under 10 minutes. All are welcome. A small donation to offset the costs of the food is requested. Bring your own beverages and a blanket or chair. Full details of events at http://www.english.und.edu
