Dear readers, two things:

1) The PEN American Center is throwing an awesome Back to School party on October 10 (co-hosted by Elissa Schappell and Paul La Farge!) to launch the PEN America Journal Teachers issue. YOU SHOULD COME. It’s free to attend, and the first 50 people through the door get a complimentary copy of issue #16.

2) Electric Literature is curating a playlist for said party. We need a coupla hours worth of music, and we need your help. What are your favorite back-to-school themed songs? Interpret liberally, and send your suggestions to press@electricliterature.com, or post your comments here. Please and thank you!

We leave you with this classically fun-yet-educational dance number:
