The Literature, Arts, & Environment Colloquium warmly invites you to the launch for the forthcoming issue of Palimpsest: Yale Graduate Literary and Arts Magazine, which explores the concept of hybridity through poetry, fiction, visual art, architecture, and nonfiction ranging from memoir to the medical humanities. The festivities will take place on Wednesday, April 20 from 7:00 to 9:00pm in WLH 309.
Free copies of the magazine will be available, and refreshments will be served.
