On October 24th, from 6-8pm, the Tompkins County Library will be hosting Raul Palma (Assistant Professor of Writing) in the BorgWarner Room as part of the library's community read initiative.

In the summer of 2017, Palma was one of ten writers invited to Havana, Cuba under the mentorship of inaugural poet Richard Blanco and anthropologist/writer Ruth Behar. Sponsored by the CubaOne Foundation, their mission was to build collaborative bridges between writers in Cuba and Cuban-American writers in the U.S. In this lecture, Palma will contextualize the emotional embargo between Cubans on the island and those in the United States. He will also discuss the role of the imagination in both reconciling and interrogating the past--a lecture staggered with excerpts of work inspired by the week he spent in Havana, Cuba.


Tuesday, October 15th from 8:30am through 12:30pm in Emerson Suites, Ithaca College will be holding our annual Point of Dispensing (POD) for all faculty, staff, and students to receive a free flu vaccination
