Our library’s major programming efforts are toward The Indian Springs Visiting Writers Series (FB), which I started with my colleague Douglas Ray shortly after starting here.

Our most recent Visiting Writer was Nona Willis Aronowitz, whose book Girldrive we read in my Feminist Literature class. A recording of her reading and my students’ Q&A with her can be found at the ISS Visiting Writers Series Soundcloud. She wrote about her experience with us for The Nation.
