Reading by Dorothy Wickenden, Author and Editor of the New Yorker 4/11, 8 p.m.

Come to the reading on Wednesday night by Dorothy Wickenden, Executive Editor of The New Yorker and author of Nothing Daunted, “an alternative Western.” The book juxtaposes “a saga about two cosseted women from New York” who went West to work as teachers in 1916 (one of whom was her grandmother) with the violence of the expansion of the United States in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

 Her reading is at 8 p.m. in Russell House. There is a q+a at 4:15 in Albritton 311 for students.
