We are delighted to announce that the great Canadian novelist Margaret Atwood will be visiting in February 2015 as a Ruth N. Halls Distinguished Lecturer. She will give a public presentation and reading, and will be available to sign books. We have also set aside ninety minutes in her visit for a students-only meeting with her. We hope you will encourage your students to attend, and that as many of us as is feasible will consider including work by Atwood on our spring 2015 syllabi.
A winner of many international literary awards, including the prestigious Booker Prize, Margaret Atwood is the author of more than forty volumes of poetry, children’s literature, fiction, and non-fiction. She is perhaps best known for her novels, which include The Edible Woman, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Robber Bride, Alias Grace, The Blind Assassin, Oryx and Crake, and The Year of the Flood. Atwood’s work has been published in more than forty languages, including Farsi, Japanese, Turkish, Finnish, Korean, Icelandic and Estonian. In 2004, she co-invented the LongPen, a remote signing device that allows someone to write in ink anywhere in the world via tablet PC and the internet. She is also a popular personality on Twitter, with over 500,000 followers.
In October, CAHI is teaming up with the Libraries and the Provost’s Office of Scholarly Publishing to host Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Director of Scholarly Communication at the Modern Language Association, and author of Planned Obsolescence: Publishing, Technology, and the Future of the Academy (2011). Fitzpatrick is one of the best-informed and most creative minds tracking the transformations in scholarly publishing affecting us all. She will deliver a public presentation and will also help in the official opening of the new Scholars Commons in the Wells Library.

The Outsiders London
Friday 5th of September 2014 to Saturday 4th of October 2014
Ian Francis will make a guest appearance at The Outsiders London this September with Endless Summer, a unique showcase of intimate studies encapsulating a collection of multiple narratives and disparate moments in time.
A comic to start off the year of thesis-writing.
That owes two buckets, filling one another,
The emptier ever dancing in the air,
The other down, unseen and full of water:
That bucket down and full of tears am I,
Drinking my griefs, whilst you mount up on high.

“Please don’t waste your time on this book. Read something from Michael Crichton instead.”
The first couple of books I’ve worked on as an editor are out this month! Even though, as an intern, “worked on” means mostly just proofing, I’m still excited to see them actually complete.
Went to the Guggenheim and saw the current show on Italian Futurism. (One day before it comes down, aw yeah.)
It was super great, and had like 95% of the works I would wanna see in a show on Futurism.
I love Futurist works, but, holy shit, I always forget what giant dicks those guys were.
