The range of events is staggering: from Three Book Clubs hosted in private homes and facilitated by outstanding UCLA English professors to Hammer Events [hosted by UCLA's well-known author/professor Mona Simpson and nationally-recognized poet/professor Stephen Yenser]. The list of classes to audit is as diverse and fascinating as ever.
