Update: SSAWW Study Group

by

You are invited to the Fall 2014 meeting of the Northwest Region SSAWW Study Group, which will take place at Whitworth University in Spokane, WA. The meeting will be on Saturday, October 18th from 12:30-3:30pm, and lunch will be provided by the Whitworth English Department and the Weyerhaeuser Center for Christian Faith and Learning. We will be meeting in Conference Room ABC in the Hixson Union Building.

The common text for the meeting is Elizabeth Stuart Phelps: Selected Tales, Essays, and Poems, edited by Elizabeth Duquette and Cheryl Tavin, which was released in June of this year. Elizabeth Duquette will be there as our special guest participant. You may purchase the text at Amazon:
