Inside Books

Where readers meet authors . . .

Inside Books

Inside Books is a summer program designed to give participants an intensive, first-hand experience with literature in the pastoral environs of the College and its Benedictine setting. Inside Books brings participants together to read and discuss celebrated current books and invites the authors to deliver an evening reading, answer participants' questions, and discuss their writing. In previous years, Inside Books hosted Pulitzer Prize winning poet Jorie Graham, current president of the Poetry Society of America Alice Quinn, and esteemed fiction writer Douglas Bauer.
