    Great to meet the couple of people from the meet-up who were able to attend. If you missed it and would like to see Anita Desai this weekend here is more info:

    Anita Desai is also participating in an event at Point Park, and is scheduled to read at 7:30pm on Saturday, Oct. 19. They are also hosting several other readings you may be interested in. More information can be found here:

    For more details on the Festival, contact Lynn Monahan, School of Arts and Sciences director of academic administration, at[masked]or [masked]. This was a nice event and most likely I will post more in the future. I do think that for future events I would recommend making reservations.
