There’s a calm before the storm between the end of the semester and the beginning of grading. This weekend it will be filled with reading approximately 400 grant application (actually, like 35 of them) and recovering from a pair of stirring Ashes test matches.
But first, The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota will team up with the College of Arts and Sciences Aha! Lecture Series and North Dakota Quarterly to host Micah Bloom (Minot State) and Thora Brylowe (University of Colorado-Boulder) this afternoon along with Sheila Liming (UND) and David Haeselin (UND) at an event celebrating the release of Bloom’s Codex. If you’re not from these-here parts, we got you covered. The event will be recorded and we’ll release it next week.
