Last week, alumni poets gathered in Classics 110 to read to a room of current and former students, through the Association of Writers and Writing Programs conference. The four poets who spoke included two MAPH’ers, Shaindel Beers ’00 and Kiki Petrosino ’04, both reading from forthcoming or recently published collections. Check out The University of Chicago Magazine’s blog entry for more details, and congratulations to our alumnae poets!
Another MAPH alum, Jeanelle Hayner (MAPH ’07), has joined the blogoshpere with a blog for budding and hardcore foodies. If you’re into food (and aren’t we all in our way?) stop by and check it out.
Hey afterMAPHers, once again it has been far too long since we gathered for a MAPH alumni happy hour, but fear not. This is about to be rectified, and you can help by joining your fellow MAPH alums at Sullys House. One of your fellows, Peter Adams (MAPH ’04), is the GM at this recently opened watering hole, and has promised to treat us to a fabulous night of excellent beverage, and fabulous pub food (and if that isn’t enough enticement, there is appearently some device called a Wii that has something to do with a 100“ HD projection screen… Anyway if your in Chicago you should make you way there, and as always MAPH is picking up the bill.
For those of you working downtown or down South here in Chicago, Sullys is just a block from the North and Clybourn stop on the Red Line.
