WIldcat in the Rye Reminder

Wildcat in the Rye
Thursday, Oct. 3, 7:00 PM, Good Counsel Hall, 2nd Floor

More than 60 years after Holden Caulfield wandered the streets of Manhattan, his author, J.D. Salinger, is back in the news.  Join us as Dr. Javadizadeh of the Villanova English department offers some new ways to think about The Catcher in the Rye and as a group of students leads a staged reading and informal discussion of one of its most provocative scenes.  Don't worry if you haven't read the book—all are welcome.  Pizza and cookies will be served.  The event is ACS-approved.
