  1. ALTERNATIVE SPRING BREAK!! APPLICATIONS DUE THIS FRIDAY!

The Office of Student Activities and Leadership is sponsoring an Alternative Spring Break trip to build homes with Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge!! This year, we are going to Cleveland, Ohio where we will be working on a variety of constructions projects, working at Habitat’s ReStore location, as well possibly doing some demolition work! You can find applications for this trip on the Globe (students > student activities > useful forms) and can be turned into Keely Latopolski in Main 103 or by email at klatopolski. Applications are due on November 2. Cost and travel information can be found on the applications. All meals are included in the cost of the trip!

2. POET MARTHA COLLINS TO READ FROM HER WORK ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1

On Thursday at 7:00 in the Art Exhibit Room, poet Martha Collins will read from her work. Ms. Collins is the author of six volumes of poetry and two collections of co-translated Vietnamese poetry and has received numerous fellowships and awards. She was Distinguished Visiting Writer at Cornell in 2010.

Her most recent books are White Papers (Pittsburgh, 2012) and the book-length poem Blue Front (Graywolf, 2006), which won an Anisfield-Wolf Award and was chosen as one of ?25 Books to Remember from 2006? by the New York Public Library. White Papers is a series of untitled poems that deal with issues of race from a number of personal, historical, and cultural perspectives. Expanding the territory of Blue Front, which focused on a 1909 lynching, in White Papers Collins addresses questions of what it means to be ?white? in a multi-racial society that continues to live under the influence of its deeply racist past.

Copies of White Papers and Blue Front are available at the Bookstore. There is a display of Martha Collins’s work in the Library. In honor of her visit, the Wells College Press will publish a letterpress broadside of one of her poems.

Her reading should be of interest not just to writing and literature students, but to the entire Wells community.

A reception will follow her reading.
