This fall, the Muhlenberg College English Department will sponsor the semester-long course "Living Writers," which brings six burgeoning and established authors to campus. In addition to interacting with students, each author will hold a public reading and book signing, all of which are free and open to the public.
Students enrolled in the course read recent works from the selected authors and then interact with the writers directly as they visit campus for a day. Writers attend classes, have lunch with students and then give a public reading of their work in the evening.
Fall readings will include:
Cristina García, novelist
Colm Toibin, novelist, journalist and playwright
Patrick Lawler, poet and environmentalist
Kay Ryan, poet
Terrance Hayes, poet
Chris Ware, graphic novelist
