Jaed Muncharoen Coffin will be speaking at Christ School this week as as our Godwin-Hauser Resident Author. He is the author of A Chant to Soothe Wild Elephants (Da Capo/Perseus), a memoir which chronicles his experience as a Buddhist monk in his mother's native village in Thailand. Jaed has spoken widely at universities and colleges where his book is taught as a common text in multicultural curriculum initiatives. Jaed's visit as this year's Godwin-Hauser Resident Author was made possible through an endowment seeded by Col. William Hauser '50 and the author Gail Godwin, who spent time on this campus as she wrote a book about an all-boys boarding school. The Godwin-Hauser Visiting Writer Program celebrates writing, reading and the connections we make through literature. Watch his speech from home - His first speech will be tonight at 7:00 p.m. - watch from home with our live-stream starting at 6:45 p.m.: www.christschool.org/live

MSN's list of 10 Great College Towns to Retire explains that university towns provide cultural attraction for tourists and residents alike, as "on-campus attractions, such as concerts, lecture series and games, are open to all..." There are often also financial benefits including friendly taxes to retirees, affordable housing costs, active restaurant scenes, and better access to health care.
