UND10121316 Last week the London Global Gateway hosted a roundtable organized by Scott Mainwaring and Gabriela Ippolito-O’Donnell of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of democratic rule in Argentina.

Reading London in fact and fiction

Created in partnership with Westminster Libraries, London in Fact and Fiction is a new micro-book group.

Starting this evening, the mixed group of Notre Dame students and local Londoners will read four short examples of London writing, and meet every other week to discuss them.

The goal is to spark conversation, share some enjoyable London writing, and bring together Londoners and members of the Notre Dame community in London, who might not otherwise meet.
