Calling all NELP Alum: If you haven't heard, NELP will be celebrating our 40th year in April with a big weekend-long event in Ann Arbor, from April 17-19. All alumni are invited to join us; there will be a small fee for the event, to help cover the cost of meals and space rental. The weekend will start off with a strolling dinner and a contradance in the Cobblestone Farms barn in Ann Arbor Friday night, and Saturday and Sunday will include things like: Common Writing (!), a NELP alum panel discussion, dinner in the Rackham Building following a reading from a NELP writer or two in Rackham Amphitheater, maybe even a film screening from a NELP filmmaker... You've probably already received a save-the-date in the mail from LSA Development.
