Lobo Living Room: Reading the River

Lobo Living Room: Reading the River

“We are water. Our bodies hold streams—sweat, blood, tears, urine. Each of us is a walking river, sloshing along with damp insides held together by a paper-thin skin,” says Professor Emerita Basia Irland. Irland is the guest lecturer for the next Lobo Living Room: Reading the River on Wednesday, April 24 in Ballroom C of the Student Union Building. Sponsored by the UNM Alumni Association, the lecture begins with registration at 5:30 p.m. followed by the presentation, then a reception in Smith Plaza.
