The Defamation Experience

It’s back to work after the Super Bowl. And there is a really interesting upcoming event taking place this Wednesday at 7:30 in Wait Chapel called The Defamation Experience:

The Wake Forest University community is invited to an evening of theatre, engagement, and dialogue through the Defamation Experience. A riveting courtroom drama, written by award-winning playwright Todd Logan, will unfold before¬†your eyes — and you will deliberate and vote on the verdict! After the votes are tallied, a facilitated post-show discussion will explore a dialogue of race, class, religion, gender, and the law that promises to stimulate critical discussions and challenge preconceived notions.

As with most events, it is free for students; we are asking them to register, though. This is a great opportunity to mix art, civil discourse, and debate – a true interdisciplinary offering!

Today’s Letters So Dear for our ’23s has gone out, and it is about the value of seizing time now (vs. assuming you can do it later). Read it here.

On the weather front, it is a fantastic 69 degrees today, and is supposed to be in the 60s most of this week. I don’t even care about rain later in the week – I am just happy not to be cold. Perhaps your Deacs are too.
