Pasta dinner to support student book publishing project

Doug MacLellanStudents in the English department’s publishing practicum class will hold a pasta dinner Thursday, Feb. 28, to raise funds for an event to launch a collection of images by photojournalist Douglas MacLellan (pictured at right).

Taught by resident writing professional Marty Gervais, the course requires students to engage in the editing, design, distribution, and marketing of a book. This year’s project, entitled In the Face of It, will reproduce a selection of MacLellan’s work, from refugee camps in Africa to the streets of Windsor. It is scheduled for release by Black Moss Press, with a launch reception April 4.

Thursday’s fundraiser will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Fogolar Furlan club, 1800 N. Service Rd. Tickets are $20, $10 for children aged 12 years and under. For more information or to buy tickets, email
