GSWS celebrated the launch of the latest books by current and former faculty members Coleman Nye, Jennifer Marchbank and Claire Robson, Ela Przybylo, and Mary Lynn Stewart (and a few special guests!)
We also celebrated the legacy of two very special community partners. ur long-time supporter Carla Poppen passed away this past May, and her generosity has led to a generous scholarship in her name for our undergraduate students. We also welcomed Patsy George, who spoke about the important legacy of her friend and our former Woodward Chair Rosemary Brown.
