A busy beginning to the spring term in the English and Creative Writing Department

It's been a busy beginning to the spring term, around campus, and in the English and Creative Writing department, with several exciting events already taking place.

In the first week of the term, we had several well-attended events in celebration of the 150th birthday of Robert Frost. An article in The Dartmouth covers these lively events held in collaboration with other departments. In the second week of the term, Argentinian Cartoonist Liniers was off-site at Still North in conversation with Professor Peter Orner, and focused on Liniers's new book Optimism Is for the Brave. The conversation was joyous, warm, and humorous while taking a direct look at the state of affairs. A friend of Liniers who attended the event referred to optimism as being Liniers's superpower.
