Correction: Pages to Film on Thursday, Nov. 12
Correction: Please note that the Pages to Film event is going to take place on Thursday, Nov. 12, from 9a - 6p, with the faculty-led event with Patti Frick at 6:30p in the Lower Level Learning Lab (formerly LIB 013). Our newsletter incorrectly stated that the 12th was a Wednesday, and we thank our eagle-eyed readers for catching that error.
