WHAT’S HAPPENING WEDNESDAYS

BY: NATANIA SHERMAN

It’s reading week, and that means lots of extra time to check out the cool museum-related events in the city. Before I get to this week’s events, I’d like to mention that today (November 11th) is Remembrance Day. Please buy a poppy and take the time to thank a veteran today.

Without further ado, here’s what’s happening this week:

1. Save the date! November 18th, next Wednesday, we’ll be holding a Musings iTea from 4:30 pm until 5:30 pm in room BL728. Come chat up our contributing editors, read some blog posts and enjoy some free food with the Musings team.

2. Next up, the York Regency Society will be holding a Jane Austen Games Night at Toronto’s First Post Office Museum, 260 Adelaide Street East on November 14th at 7:30 pm. It’s $20 general admission and $15 for students. activities involve drinking tea by the fireside, and writing letter using a quill pen. Regency era clothing is encouraged!
