As part of this year's Cedar Falls Authors Festival, L&L English graduate students invite you to attend a live, radio-style adaptation of one of Aldrich's short stories, "The Woman Who Was Forgotten" on Monday, October 16 at 7 p.m. in the Cedar Falls Public Library meeting room. Discussion and reception to follow. Support for this event comes from the Department of Languages & Literatures.
