For our next meeting of this season’s Gutenberg Conspiracy, Raouf Halaby will lead a discussion of David McCullough’s The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris on Wednesday, February 26th. Raouf would like to title the discussion “Voila, Les Americains, Voila Les Americains Sont Arrives A Paris.” We will be meeting in the Walker Conference Center at 12noon; feel free to bring a sack lunch if you are not inclined to grab something from the cafeteria. Note that you may bring a tray downstairs from the cafeteria, and the Sodexo staff will collect them after our meeting. And of course, even if you have not read the book, you are strongly urged to attend. Hope to see you all there!
By the way, please thank Johnny Wink for agreeing to give this season’s Last Lecture; I’m looking forward to it.
Of course, I will gladly take book nominations for 2014-15 at any time. If you know little about this gathering of book lovers, please read more about it at: http://www.obu.edu/library/gutenberg-conspiracy/.

This Thursday we “welcome” the “school” from across the street to Bill Vining Arena for the Southern Bancorp Battle of the Ravine. GAC Tournament seeding is on the line for the Lady Tigers and Tigers.
The first 100 students to arrive for the Lady Tigers game at 5:30 will receive a ticket for a free Ouachita Tiger t-shirt. You will be able to collect the t-shirt between games. We will also be honoring our Tiger and Lady Tiger seniors between games, so you’ll want to be here to say thanks to our graduating student-athletes.

Dr. Doug Hofstadter, a University of Indiana professor and Pulitzer Prize winner, will share his research in literary translation and how it relates to his universal love of learning. With expertise in physics, cognitive science, linguistics, mathematics, and art, it’s obvious why his last name was borrowed for the Big Bang Theory character you’re thinking of. Help us celebrate his return to campus and get inspired for your own intellectual pursuits!
