Nolan to RPW Letter 11/22/65
Maggie Nolan writes an informal message to ask whether Warren would be interested in attending a party for SNCC to be hosted by John Updike. The party will have financial and educational goals. She hopes that Warren and James Baldwin will be able to attend as honored guests. The envelope was addressed to Warren at Yale and redirected to his home.

Dear Dr. Warren,
This is just an informal note as we have no specific
date or place as yet. Sometime in February John Updike
is hosting a party for us and we would like to
have several well known writers who have worked
in the Movement as honored guests. We are now
planning on inviting James Baldwin and yourself
but we may add a few others also. Could you let me
know whether you would be interested in attending
our party, the purposes of which are mainly financial
and educational, and if so what dates would be
convenient for you? We would very much appreciate
your coming and feel it will be a great help.
Thank you very much.
