Friday to Sunday you absolutely must come (if you are not restricted geographically or otherwise) to THE literary conference at KUA. The topic is “Literature in the Expanded Field” and there is lots to talk about. Look, read, and come!
(oh and by the way: I am one of the contributors to the student panels – so be there Friday at 9, if you want my pearls of wisdom).
I have taken the liberty to copy the program as it stands in Facebook Events – feel free to rsvp, share, invite, be inspired and spread the word.
