    so, share your story by sending to nnlmmar at pitt.edu. If applicable,
    also share a photo depicting your activities/events.

    MAR will be collecting your stories and highlighting them in our
    blog and weekly postings throughout October.  All those that submit
    a story before Oct. 31st will be entered into a random drawing to
    receive an award to cover registration and airfare to MLA 2013.
