During a WESeminar on May 26 titled “A Conversation with Wesleyan Writers,” celebrated authors Robin Cook ‘62 and Carolyn Parkhurst ’92 shared how Wesleyan shaped their writing. The event took place at the Wesleyan RJ Julia Bookstore in Middletown.

Doctor and author Robin Cook ’62 is widely credited with introducing the word “medical” to the thriller genre, and 34 years after publication of his breakthrough novel, Coma, he continues to dominate the category he created. He has written 35 international bestsellers and is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. His latest novel, Host, was published in October 2015.

Carolyn Parkhurst ’92 holds an MFA in fiction from American University. She is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels, The Dogs of Babel, Lost and Found and The Nobodies Album, as well as a children’s book, Cooking with Henry and Elliebelly. She lives in Washington, D. C., with her husband, Evan Rosser ‘92, and their two children. Her latest novel, Harmony, was published in August 2016. #WesReunion

On May 23, Wesleyan celebrated the opening of the new Wesleyan RJ Julia Bookstore with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The store, located at 413 Main Street in Middletown, was packed with Wesleyan faculty and staff, city and state officials, members of the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce and other community members, and those who worked to transform the 13,000-square-foot space into a gorgeous bookstore and café. Guests milled about and explored the store’s offerings while sampling small bites provided by Grown™ café. Brief remarks were delivered by Wesleyan President Michael S. Roth, RJ Julia owner Roxanne Coady, and Grown™ owner Shannon Allen, followed by the cutting of the ribbon.

Boasting high ceilings with tin detail, ample natural light, and a two-story open concourse design that provides a spacious, airy environment for reading and shopping, the Wesleyan RJ Julia Bookstore houses approximately 18,000 books, with a special section highlighting authors from the Wesleyan community. In addition to books, the store sells a wide range of both Wesleyan-themed and general apparel and merchandise. The store’s quiet lower level evokes a library, with seating areas for exploring new books.

“Mixed Media 2014 12 x 12”

Cassia Cogger harnesses the inherent simplicity and harmony of the circle as a means for personal storytelling and for connecting with the inner self.  She is the author of the newly published, Creating Personal Mandalas: Story Circle Techniques in Watercolor and Mixed Media, where she shares exercises in self-exploration via the endless possibilities of creating within the circle.  Cogger heralds the circle as the most basic of shapes– one that can open your heart, lead you back to your center, and ultimately, give rise to your authentic voice.

During the opening reception on Thursday, June 1, 2017, Cogger will lead a free personal mandala workshop from 5:30-6:30p.m.  The exhibit will run from June 1-July 26 with an opening reception in conjunction with Middletown ArtWalk evening on June 1 from 5-7p.m.

The gallery’s regular summer viewing hours are Monday through Thursdays from 9a.m.-5p.m. and Fridays from 9a.m to noon.

This is a scam alert rather than a Phish as it is looking for you to send money and not hunting for credentials.

Reblogged from: African Studies News @ Wesleyan. (Go to the original post…)

This year we had an amazing set of applications from 10 students. We wished we could support all of their projects!

This year’s winners are:

Bridget Adarkwa (’17) and Nailah Hines (’17)

Their project supports the Girl’s Education Initiative of Ghana, in Ghana’s Ashanti and Greater Accra regions. GEIG is dedicated to the professional and academic success of women in Ghana. They will be using their unique skills in communication and marketing, background that includes working with radio stations, the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, and Bloomberg Philanthropies, to assist GEIG. They will be creating a new marketing campaign for that organization, and assist their summer internship and volunteer program by conducting a program evaluation, something else they already have background in.


Matthew Shelley-Reade (’17)

Matthew’s work will be in Rwanda, on a project titled: Mitigating Climate Change and Protecting Biodiversity along the Albertine Rift. His unique background includes extensive experience with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) research. And it includes impressive documentary film-making, for projects on Middletown’s history (his senior thesis), on the quinoa industry in Peru (which included travel and interviews in that country), and with a PBS television series. For this project, he will partner with Biocoop an environmental non-profit that promotes issues of environmental sustainability, climate change mitigation, and biodiversity conservation. This organization is a bottom-up organization, working with youth, local communities, and local farmers in its projects. He will be helping the team develop community education projects, using GIS and developing video materials to assist in community outreach. He will film Biocoop activities the entire time he is there, with the purpose of creating promotional materials for that organization.
