Campus Connect: News and happenings at Poly

Poly's Global Initiatives Program (GIP) and Global Initiatives Alliance (GIA) each will host an international book club/author event on Monday, Feb. 12. South Korean author Krys Lee will read from her novel, “How I Became a North Korean,” and share her insights on the human side of the North Korean conflict. The GIP event will take place at 6 p.m. in the Upper School Library. No RSVP is required. Later that evening, the GIA event will take place at the home of Poly parents of alumni Diane and Greg Evans. Refreshments will be served; if you'd like to bring a dish or wine to share, please let us know when you reply. RSVP to Alison Gee and contact the Alumni Office for the address. Both book club events are open to all Poly parents and adult members of the greater Poly community.
