Dr. Kelly Clasen will be our featured guest, and we expect to be reading poetry by Langston Hughes (in anticipation of this year's featured speaker at the Oklahoma Literary Arts Festival) and "The Goophered Grapevine" by Charles Chestnutt

Literati: Poetry, Coffee, Grad School

"Still Life with Coffee Pot" (1888) by Vincent Van Gogh

The Literati Executive Board writes:
"As some of you may have heard, Literati has some interesting and fun things coming up in the next month or so. Thursday, October 25th at 3:30pm marks our poetry open-mic at Hot Shots coffee shop. Any of you who would like to read poetry (or another short, creative work) are more than welcome to join us. Or, you can just come to listen and enjoy some coffee.

"Next, many of us students are becoming more and more interested in continuing school to obtain a Master’s degree or even a PhD, but most of us don't know the first steps to take, what our main concentrations should be, and where the best places are for us to go. That is where YOU come in. We need professors who would be willing to speak with students about experiences and to give advice to some of us who want to continue our education after graduation. "The Grad Talk" is planned for Thursday, November 15 at 3:30pm in the Center for Academic Engagement (Faust 159). We would love for any/all of you to come and enlighten us with your expertise!

"Please let Dr. Murphy know if you’re interested in sharing your expertise. We hope to hear from you soon!

"Snacks provided."
