In order to facilitate maximum student participation in the "Meet the Author" event on April 28, 2018 we have decided to organize a group trip via CATA. Please share this information with all of your students. To facilitate a group of students attending the event we are planning to travel together via CATA to the Lansing Center. If you are interested in joining our group, please meet at the MSU Union in the lobby in front of Sparty Store at 2:45 PM on Saturday, April 28, 2018. We will then walk together to the CATA bus stop on Michigan Ave for the 20 minute ride to the Lansing Center.

If you have any questions regarding the ride, please contact John Metzler at the African Studies Center: metzler(at)msu.edu
