      Hi LeRoy,

      You won’t be able to attend this guest lecture, because it is for another class and only the students enrolled in that class can attend.

      We’re going to discuss some of the topics in the guest lecture in further depth in our ENG2420 class. Also, I’ll share these links with the rest of our class, too.

      Best, Professor Ellis
