English Teaching Opportunity in China

7education is opening applications to help bring together motivated volunteers who are native English speakers and bilingual Chinese university students to provide teaching services and to develop distributable teaching materials in China.

Honorable Annie Kim did this trip last year and had this to say:
“It’s something that’s so empowering to be able to speak and communicate in another language, and the process of learning another language is something that’s really beautiful and really helps to build your confidence as a person in general, not specifically just in learning that language. What we’re doing really, really transcends just teaching English and just building confidence in speaking a language.”

A Brieft History of Seven Killings Writer Marlon James

Thursday, April 14, 5 p.m.
Anderson Hall Room 821

The Temple MFA Creative Writing Program is proud to have novelist Marlon James reading in our Poets & Writers Series. The reading is free and open to the public.

Marlon James was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1970. His most recent novel, A Brief History Of Seven Killings, won the 2015 Man Booker Prize. In the book, James explores multiple genres: the political thriller, the oral biography, and the classic whodunit to confront the untold history of Jamaica in the late 1970’s, the assassination attempt on Bob Marley, and the country’s own clandestine battles of the cold war. His second novel, The Book of Night Women, won the 2010 Dayton Literary Peace Prize, The Minnesota Book Award, and was a finalist for the 2010 National Book Critics Circle Award in fiction. His first novel, John Crow’s Devil, was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and the Commonwealth Writers Prize, and was a New York Times Editor’s Choice. James’ short fiction has appeared in Esquire, Kingston Noir, and Silent Voices, and his nonfiction has appeared in Granta, Publisher’s Weekly, and The Caribbean Review of Books. He teaches at Macalester College. He will read from his work.
