DePaul & the English Department Welcome One, Book, One Chicago Selection Author Thomas Dyja | Thursday, November 5th

On November 5th, the Department of English is hosting two events with Thomas Dyja, author of the 2015/2016 One Book, One Chicago selection The Third Coast: When Chicago Built the American Dream.

At 4:30, Dyja will be meeting informally for a Q&A with DePaul Creative Writing students. At present, the discussion is scheduled to take place in the 2nd floor student lounge/resource room, though it will be moved to a larger venue depending on interest.

Then, at 6:00, Dyja will be reading in Richardson 115. (see flyer below)

We hope to see you at one or both events!
