It’s only one or two paragraphs to put your bid in!  I eat,  you eat, we all eat, so why not eat at MLA for free?

The deadline for the Midwest Chapter/MLA’s Free Lunch Award WAS Friday, March 14th. But, if you missed it, throw something together and get it to Jere Odell (jdodell at iupui dot edu) this week.

This is your chance to have the Midwest Chapter cover the cost of the Chapter Council Roundtables Luncheon at MLA in Chicago.  Do it!  It’s easy and fun and everyone loves a free lunch! Apply today.
