~FRIDAY LIT LINKS~

Hi friends,

This week we bring you news from the past and the future, from the printing press to floating museums to a library made of trees.  Further temporal confusion: we’ve learned recently that alt-lit is dead and it’s okay to quit things.  As Joan Chen writes about leaving Twin Peaks: 

"I was the exotic beauty in an incestuous town, a poisonous fish out of water.  And we all know I haven’t been these things for quite a while now.  However, a glimmer of hope still exists, for Josie was last seen trapped in a wooden doorknob.  Perhaps I can come back in one of the episodes as a doorknob witch?" 

xoxo,

the lit

Not White Men: Suggestions for Yale’s New Residential Colleges

Four people YOU could suggest for Yale to name their new residential colleges after: Jane Matila Bolin (top left), Edward Bouchet (top right), Henry Roe Cloud (bottom left) and Grace Hooper (bottom right). Google them, learn their stories, and most importantly, send Yale your suggestion online at: http://president.yale.edu/name-suggestions-new-colleges

FRIDAY LIT LINKS

Hi friends,

On Wednesday all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls were released to Netflix, and the Yale Literary Magazine hasn’t left bed since.

From bed, we bring you these things to consider: 

  • radical feminists
  • radical artists
  • radical artists/feminists
  • a poem about Drake

TV will rot your brains!

xoxoxo,
