Join us and be part of a shared learning experience that appeals to the student in each of us. 

"Oryx and Crake" by Margaret Atwood is an unforgettable love story and a compelling vision of the future. Snowman, known as Jimmy, is struggling to survive in a world where he may be the last human. Mourning the loss of his best friend, Crake, and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved, Jimmy shares a new world and questions of survival. 

Last fall, 'Oryx and Crake' was selected as the book each incoming freshman would read for the New Student Forum. As part of their orientation students attended a presentation by Margaret Atwood and then broke into discussions lead by faculty members to further study the book. 

We invite you to experience the Forum as alumni! In addition to discussing the book as a group, we will also have the opportunity to view Margaret Atwood’s engaging presentation to the first year students. 

Spouses, significant others and friends are welcome!
It is highly recommended that you read the book in advance. 

Hosted by Amy Cohen '85 and Sid Levinson '85 at their home in Hancock Park.
