Happy Monday! We at Murphy know that this is an anxiety-inducing time and that social distancing can be lonely. However, we want to assure you that we’re still working to provide resources and sustain our literary and language community. Over the coming days and weeks, we’ll be posting some opportunities for engagement. We hope to help you find comfort and peace of mind through literature and language in this stressful time.

The public lecture by Daína Chaviano, set for Tuesday, March 17, 2020, and all related special events, have been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. We hope to reschedule for sometime next year.
