Never fear baristas, line cooks and bartenders, your liberal arts degree from Reed College can still be useful, learn how at the Putting Liberal Arts to Work career conference for "writers, readers and thinkers." The event's keynote address is given by Timothy O'Leary, UM alum who combined business with creative Writing, co-founder and CEO of The R2C Group: the largest consumer direct ad agency in the United States. There are also literary agents, the mayor and the totally awesome Kate Gadbow, a former UM Creative Writing program head and current Poverello Center board member. University Center, 3rd floor. 1–5 PM. Free.
