So many things going on at UW.  You just have to keep your eye out and be willing to attend things that you don't know much about.  Because I'm a class member, I often hear of events related to the class and the faculty.  I got a notice of a showing of the  documentary "Perween Rahman; the Rebel Optimist" with the filmmaker Mahera Omar attending.  Put on by South Asian student student association.  So we go.  We're the only 'older' people there.  We are welcomed.  20-30 people there.  Delicious Samosas (fried potato vegtable things).  Wonderful film about Pakistani architect and planner who worked in the poor areas of Karachi.  Assassinated in 2013.  Thoughtful Q&A afterwards.  In a chemistry lecture hall.
