2007-2008 Stanford Jean and Bill Lane Lecture Series

Self knows that there are quite a number of Stanford alums who’ve stumbled on to her website (Thank you, Ian Hsu!). Post about Stanford alums in Hollywood was big hit!

Niece, who is usually a font of Stanford information, is at Stanford in Oxford this fall. Self already misses their weekly gab-fests! Until her return in January, self and loyal blog readers will have to depend on e-mail and mailings from Alumni Office. And last weekend, self found in her mailbox the flyer announcing the 2007-2008 Jean and Bill Lane Lecture Series. Without further ado:

MARK DOTY, author of the poetry collections School of the Arts, Source, and Sweet Machine
