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 weโ€™re still working to provide resources and sustain our literary and language community. Over the coming days and weeks, weโ€™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.

Anushka's talk today, the last for a while, was a reminder of how meaningful it is to gather as a community of literature and language lovers. It also bore witness to the vital learning experience of travel abroad. Hendrix-Murphy is committed to resuming both as soon as we can!
