Reception for “Night Flying” and reading by author Joy Christine Mlozanowski

NightFlyingCoverFrom the Friends of the Wesleyan Library:

NIGHT FLYING weaves a journey of difficult and life-changing choices with a narrative of love, understanding and hope. In her diary, Mae questions God as she and her husband receive heartbreaking news about her pregnancy, and agonize over the decisions they face. Needing time away to think, she visits her childhood home and reconnects with Will, a deaf friend who taught her to sign when they were young. After her visit, Mae and Will continue an intimate written exchange in which she confides her despair, while Will shares his own struggle to honor his dying father’s wishes, and reconcile his mother’s reluctance to let go.

Joy Mlozanowski is a writer, artist, and a transpersonal hypnotherapist with an interest in expressive arts. She holds an MFA in creative writing and is a member of the Olin Library staff.

Lecture: Food as a Social Issue

american way of eating

Noelle Hiam ’15 writes in:

Visiting professor and journalist Tracie McMillan is the author of the New York Times bestseller, The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee’s, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table. Mixing immersive reporting, undercover investigative techniques and “moving first-person narrative” (Wall Street Journal), McMillan’s book argues for thinking of fresh, healthy food as a public and social good—a stance that inspired The New York Times to call her “a voice the food world needs” and Rush Limbaugh to single her out as an “overeducated” “authorette” and “threat to liberty.” She’ll be speaking on her work, her book, and food as a social justice issue.
