"As An English Major..." A Roundtable

Please join us for a roundtable discussion with five graduates from the Pomona English Department: a children’s book author, a survivors' rights activist, a high-school English teacher, a developer of affordable housing, and a newcomer to the film and television industry in L.A. They’ll talk about the paths they’ve taken as English majors since graduating, any turns and discoveries along the way, and how they’ve been able to use what they learned from literature and literary studies to navigate these paths. We invite all of you to hear their stories, to ask questions, and to enjoy food and conversation.
