Mary Shelley Reading Marathon

As is our nearly annual tradition, Westmont students, faculty, staff and community members will gather in Reynolds Hall Lounge to read aloud and listen to a novel in its entirety. This year we will be reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, along with selections from her short fiction.

Lean In reading group discussions throughout the semester. If you are interested in joining a discussion of Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In, contact any member of the Gender Studies Advisory Committee [make a link to the Advisory Committee page) for further information on specific chapters places and times.

The event series gets updated throughout the semester.  Please check back.
