Tea with Dr. Aree and Dr. Moo

Louis and I had a truly delightful two-hour high tea with Dr. Aree, SWU's Chair of Library Science, and Dr. Moo, SWU's Chair of Western Languages, Wednesday afternoon, March 7th. Our wide-ranging chat focused mostly on ways of teaching English as a second language using the west's great literature, especially poetry. William Carlos Williams was probably our favorite poet today, and Moo's dissertation included John Steinbeck. So much to discuss, so little time.
It was great fun in a beautiful setting, next to the Lotus pond in the Sofitel lobby near the campus. Louie loves being surrounded by the ladies, you know!
