Back to School

Jennifer Sampson's comment in this post reminds me that registration is currently open for the Newberry Library's Fall Seminars. Explore the themes of Toni Morrison's Beloved, take an academic stab at The Graphic Novel, learn more about Writing and Selling a Novel, brush up on your Food Writing skills or take Jennifer's own class and learn How to Read Like a Victorian. Registration for all classes can be done online; classes start in September and October. (Thanks, Jennifer!)
