Ithaca College International Club is proud to present that this Wednesday, March 23, 6:30pm in Friends 210, Kiran Nagarkar will be reading excerpts from his highly controversial, formally unpublished play Bedtime Story. Bedtime Story is loosely based on the Mahabharata and has been considered dangerous enough to be the object of censorship.

Kiran Nagarkar is a notable novelist, playwright, critic, and screenwriter. He is currently a Visiting Fulbright Scholar teaching for the Ithaca College Honors Program. Writing in both Marathi and English, he is widely considered to be one of the most significant writers in postcolonial India, having been awarded the subcontinent’s most prestigious literary prizes.

 

Colorectal Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among American men and women, despite the fact it is one of the more preventable and curable forms of cancer.

This is why it is important to be educated about Colorectal Cancer prevention and screening methods.

After the death of a loved one, it might not be easy talking about your experiences with those around you - especially if you are concerned that doing so will be a bummer for others.  Therefore, a weekly drop in support group (Living with Grief) exists right here on campus to provide you with a place to talk about your experiences.  Consider joining others who have experienced the death of a loved one and understand what it's like being a student and coping with loss.

Living with Grief meets every Thursday at 5:15 (until 6:30ish) in the Health Promotion Resource Room, which is just down the hall from Counseling and Psychological Services.  If you have any questions, feel free to email LeBron Rankins (group facilitator) at lrankins@ithaca.edu.
