Highlights this month include a talk on February 23 by poet and Pulitzer Prize nominee Elizabeth Alexander (BA '84), who was invited by President Obama to compose and read a poem at his inauguration.  Also, we're partnering with The Ivy Plus Society to bring you a multi-school party at the exciting Marquee venue on February 24!

Looking ahead to March, we'd like to call your attention to a special preview of Before the Night Falls, a new opera by Jorge Martin '81.  Drawing on the memoirs of a gay dissident Cuban author who died of AIDS in New York in 1990, the work premiers at the Fort Worth Opera later this year.  The preview and reception with the composer on March 9 is co-sponsored by several Yale groups: Association of Yale Alumni (AYA), YAAMNY, Yale GALA and Yale Latino Alumni Association.

Read on about other upcoming events, including green investing ideas, a book sorting service project, Feb club and more!
