The public is warmly encouraged to come to my reception and reading for METS FAN on Thursday, November 1 at Hofstra. The reception begins at 5:30 in the first floor lobby of C.V. Starr Hall on the South Campus (on California Avenue, just south of the Hempstead Turnpike). The talk begins at 6:30 in the Monroe Lecture Center Theatre right next door.
At the reception, there will be free and plentiful food and drink, and the New York Mets have graciously contributed Mets blinkie pins that will be distributed to everyone who attends. A Gotham Baseball Magazine radio podcast will also be broadcasting from the reception and the event. Mets fans and others will be welcome to offer their comments on the radio show. If you’re a reader of my blog, please make a special point of coming up to me at the reception or after the talk and saying hello. I will be very glad to meet you.
It’s best to park on the North Campus, where there’s lots of parking, and then cross the Hempstead Turnpike to the South Campus, either at the light or over the Unispan.
So please come and visit me in my native habitat at Hofstra, where I really am a professor. See, here I am telling Honors College students stuff about Virgil’s Aeneid that they never knew before! Look how appreciative they are. You too can feel as if you’re in my class. Come to the reading!
