On Memorial Day Weekend The Common went public. A literary IPO. Our first offering featured Issue 00 contributor Ted Conover who read from his new bookThe Routes of Man and talked to a packed house about his unique on-the-ground journalism.
Afterward, at the Mead Art Museum, we toasted glasses of wine (white only—there’s art on the walls!) and snacked on shrimp in piri-piri sauce on cucumber rounds and mini chocolate pots de crème. A celebration with friends old and new.
Listen to the audio on the Amherst College site, and check out pictures from the event below.
