Alma Mater

The University of California Santa Cruz (“The original authority on questioning authority”) is my alma mater, and has continued to nourish me long after she handed me my degree.  Five years ago, I was tremendously honored to be named one of this relatively new university’s “45+5” alumni.  And coming up on the 25th, I will be participating in the 50th anniversary celebration weekend.

This is open to the public, as is the evening event downtown at Bookshop Santa Cruz.  Come out, explore this flabbergastingly beautiful campus through one of the many walks, join in on one of the lectures offered, bring the kids to explore one of the events for them, and just come to celebrate a True Original of a university.

Details of my panel on writing and publishing are here, with a list of all the other events here.

    Congratulations, Laurie, sounds like a wonderful program. I’m sure that the University is proud to have you as an alumna!

    Would love to hear your talk! I’m sure the people who attend will love the campus and what you have to say! Have fun!
