Women's and Gender Studies
Invitation to the Women’s Studies
Reading Group Meeting
You are invited to join the first Women’s Studies Reading Group meeting this year! We will start out with selections from author, screenwriter and director Nora Ephron. Although she is best known for her humor and often satirical writing, she began her career as a journalist writing about the women’s movement of the 70’s and feminist issues. We will read four short readings from her work. Two are from her earlier collection from the 1970’s Crazy Salad: Some Things About Women, entitled, “On Never Having Been A Prom Queen” and “The Hurled Ashtray”. The other two are from her newer collection (2006), I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman. Those are the title piece, “I Feel Bad About My Neck” and “What I Wish I’d Known”.
Hard copies of all four pieces are available from the Women’s Studies Office. Please e-mail Ieva Zake at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your packet of the readings. Students, faculty and staff members are invited to join us! For questions please contact Maria Sudeck at email@example.com.
The time, date and location:
November 26, 2007 at 3:15 to 4:30 in the Teacher Education Conference Room,
3rd Floor Education Hall.
Dr. Sudeck will bring dessert, please bring your own beverages…
