Don’t Miss the Wesley Literary Tea! January 21, 2:00 pm, West Lounge.
This is the 18th year of the Literary Tea, and this year’s focus is authors from the Midwest. Though the authors are common in hailing from the Midwest, the selections offer an astounding breadth of commentary on social, political, and familial issues. Whether reading about narrators’ poignant personal and familial journeys, considering how a simple comic strip and its author significantly impacted American society, or considering historic sagas only recently receiving renewed attention, this year’s texts are sure to provoke thoughtful reviews from Wesley friends.
