- Host or help plan a reunion or regional event
- Collaborate with faculty members on projects
- Submit a class note/Gather class notes from classmates
- Join the Annual Fund team
- Participate in Scholarship Dinner or Auction
- Serve as a class representative or on the Latin Alumni Board
- And More...
Pamela Eren's '81 latest novel, Eleven Hours, was recently reviewed by Jen McDonald in the New York Times. McDonald writes: "We are reminded that every birth is an event without script, the ultimate suspense story. Erens registers this without preaching and without judgment, creating one of the most realistic and harrowing portrayals of birth you are likely to encounter in fiction."
Erens will be touring with her book throughout May and June: May 15 - Water Street Bookstore (Exeter, NH), May 17 – Greenlight Bookstore (Brooklyn, NY), June 27 - Kramerbooks (Washington, DC) and July 10-17 – Tin House Summer Workshop (Portland, OR). Erens will also be appearing at the Chicago Tribune's Printers Row Festival on Sunday, June 12 at 11:45 a.m.
