Our April meeting features a change of scenery, and some great topics of conversation from our colleagues at the University of Houston Downtown.


Join us Tuesday, April 14, at 1099 North (10th floor, Main Building), from 5:30 to 7:30pm for the following discussions:

The UHD English Department has generously offered to cover our parking and will provide each attendee with a token after the event. Participants will need to park in the Visitor parking lot (V) and use the token to exit the parking lot. The parking map is here.
