Please join us next week for the second annual Mandel Lectures in the Humanities, featuring James Wood of Harvard University andThe New Yorker. Hailed by the Financial Times as “the best literary critic of his generation,” Wood will be delivering a series of public lectures on the theme of “Letters to a Young Writer,” in which the critic and novelist will grapple with the great questions of literature: the “Why?” the “What?” and the “How?” The lectures will take place on Monday, April 8; Wednesday, April 10; and Thursday, April 11. All events will take place at 4:30 in the Mandel Humanities Center Auditorium (MCH G3). All are free and open to the public. There will be a public reception in the beautiful Mandel Atrium immediately following the final lecture. All are invited!

** Please also note: on Tuesday, April 9, at 12:30, Professor Wood will be leading a special conversation about Saul Bellow’s classic short novel, Seize the Day (1956). This symposium will take place in the Mandel Reading Room, on the third floor of the Mandel Center (Room 303). Free lunch will be served. And we will provide FREE COPIES of the novel, in advance, to participants. Supplies are limited! For your free copy, contact Mangok Bol,, MCH 129.
