Thirty of Virginia Woolf’s closest friends will dine together at the International Virginia Woolf Society dinner party at MLA in Chicago, the evening of Saturday, Jan. 11, at 6:15 p.m. at Shaw’s Crab House, 21 E. Hubbard St.
The meal will follow the Virginia Woolf and London’s Colonial Writers panel, which ends around 4:45 or
5 p.m. The dinner at Shaw’s is set for 6:15 p.m., and diners will have a room of their own, the Oyster Hall of Fame room.
Menu: Choice of five entrees: grilled salmon, Maryland crab cakes, chicken, vegetarian cous cous, and others. The meal will include soup, salad, entrée and dessert—as well as wines.
The cost per individual is $55. The IVWS will contribute wine, the gratuity, and subsidize $20 of the individual price for graduate students. If you mentor graduate students, consider inviting them to the dinner and bringing them along.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “MLA DINNER” right away, as the first 30 to make reservations will be the lucky ones at the party. First come, first served!
