7pm, HFSC Social Room
Women’s sports, since their inception, have been seen as a separate class of competition that requires protection and rules for entry. But what are those rules and who gets to make them? In Fair Play, award-winning LGBTQ+ sports journalist Katie Barnes (they/them) traces the evolution of women’s sports as a pastime and a political arena, and looks to the inclusion of trans athletes. Copies of Fair Play will be available for pickup in the Women’s Center, Leavey 327.

Find more information and RSVP
One of the most distinctive and affecting voices in contemporary fiction is that of Arinze Ifeakandu. Born in Kano, Nigeria, in 1995, raised a Christian, and self-identified as queer from a young age, Ifeakandu is an emerging master of the short story (a craft he furthered at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop). Not yet 30 years old, he has been awarded a Dylan Thomas Prize, an O. Henry Prize, and is a Kirkus and LAMBDA Award finalist. At Georgetown University, he’ll read from his acclaimed first book, God’s Children Are Little Broken Things (2022), and discuss fiction, faith, sexuality, and the present-day Nigeria that is the setting of many of his stories. Paul Elie, senior fellow in the Berkley Center and moderator of the Faith and Culture series, will lead the conversation.
Copies of God’s Children Are Little Broken Things (2022) will be available for purchase. A light lunch will be served.
