Emerson has many students and organizations that host events. This is exhibited through EmConnect’s event page. The Beacon Living Arts section went through the events for the next week and picked out a few for this week that seemed interesting.

Reading with award-winning writer

Amy Hempel, author of her Collected Stories, will host a Q&A in the Beard Room at 4 p.m. Tuesday. Hempel will read from Collected Stories, named one of The New York Times’ 10 Best Books of the Year in 2006, in the Bill Bordy Theater at 6 p.m. In 2007, Hempel won both the Ambassador Book Award and the Harold Vursell Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Interested in studying abroad?

On Wednesday, the Academic Affairs office will host an advising session for students interested in studying abroad. This is the first step of the procedure to learn about studying abroad though non-Emerson programs.  The meeting will cover the application process, how to get credit, how to pay for the program, and how to apply for scholarships. These meetings will be held every Wednesday throughout the fall semester at 4 p.m. and every Friday at 11 a.m. in Walker 1020.

Sunset at the Esplanade

Resident assistants in the Paramount Center organized a field trip to the Charles River Esplanade on Friday at 5 p.m. There will be group games until the end of the afternoon when students will watch the sunset along the docks.

Boston Latino International Film Festival

The Boston Latino International Film Festival will start Thursday and run until Sunday. To kick off the festival, Emerson will host a free reception at the Emerson Urban Arts Gallery at 5 p.m. followed by a screening of Summer 1993 directed by Carla Simón at the Paramount Center in the Bright Family Screening Room.
