In-Person and Virtual Events this Fall
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the founding of English Society and we are excited to announce a series of events that will be held both in-person and via Zoom this semester:
Join English majors/minors and faculty for informal conversation (and the occasional round of trivia) during this bi-weekly meeting. Sadly, no actual tea will be served due to covid rules, but we're looking forward to another great semester of fun discussion!
Our first Afternoon Tea will be held on Wednesday, February 10th. We will be meeting in person in Pryz 321/323 from 12:30-1:30pm. Come to discuss what you've been reading and/or watching over the break! Whether you've been studying for comps or binge-watching Bridgerton (or both), join the discussion with your fellow book nerds.
To attend in person, please reserve a seat by adding your name and email address to this form (also includes tabs for all the teas this semester).
The Zoom link will be sent out to the English major and faculty listservs before each Afternoon Tea.
