Wild and Well Read
D.H. Lawrence (Lady Chatterly's Lover, Women in Love) said, “I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.” So, all you wild things, if you miss the inaugural D.H. Lawrence Lecture at the UNM Continuing Education Building on Thursday, Feb. 23, you're not allowed to feel sorry for yourself. From 6-8pm, poet Mark Doty will be giving a presentation on the renowned author, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter. It is free for literati 13+ and will be followed by a book signing and complimentary dessert reception. (Renée Chavez)
