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.

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!
