Attend the Unveiling of the 2015 Quadrangle

Canisius College’s literary and visual arts magazine, Quadrangle, will unveil its 63rd issue on Wednesday, April 15 at 6:00 p.m. in the Grupp Fireside Lounge.

The issue includes poetry, short stories, creative non-fiction, artwork and photography. The unveiling will involve readings from selected contributors. This year’s issue contains surprises that any book or art enthusiast simply cannot resist.

For the first time in the magazine’s long-standing history, Quadrangle will be printed on certified post-consumer and post-industrial recycled paper, earning it an eco-friendly designation by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The design of Quadrangle remains a mystery every year but this year’s magazine will be a different shape than previous issues.

The Quadrangle will also unveil a newly-redesigned website, built by Brooke Ballard ’15. The site will not only showcase the literary magazine and serve as an archive of past issues but will provide information about the college’s Creative Writing Program.

For more information, contact Dr. Mick Cochrane at 888-2662.

Check out Buffalo Film Premier Screening: She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry

The local premiere of the new movie She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry (directed by Mary Dore) will be hosted at Canisius College in the Science Hall Atrium on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, 6:00-8:00 p.m. This documentary film explores and dramatizes the modern women’s movement from 1966-1971.

She’s Beautiful traces the events from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women’s liberation (Marxist and Black Feminism); from intellectuals like Kate Millett who wrote about sexual politics to the street theatrics of WITCH (Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell!).

This is an important film that shines light on how women banded together to produce a discourse and a plan of legal action that would ultimately result in greater civil rights for women in the educational, social and economic spheres of American society.

This movie premiere is sponsored by the Women & Gender Studies program at Canisius College. Event is free and open to the public.
