To celebrate my retirement, my fabulous colleagues Emily Hall, Nancy Linh Karls, and Jennifer Fandel organized a celebration of writing on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, in the Alumni Lounge at the Pyle Center, a beautiful room on campus overlooking Lake Mendota.

The weather and that location were perfect—the Alumni Lounge in the Pyle Center is where we launched the very successful first International Writing Centers Association Summer Institute in 2003, and when the IWCA Summer Institute returned to UW-Madison in the summer of 2008, we began the week in the same beautiful spot.

If you consider yourself to have even a passing familiarity with science, you likely find yourself in a state of disbelief as the president of the United States calls climate scientists “hoaxsters” and pushes conspiracy theories about vaccines.
