Russell House Readings

Throughout the academic year, a number of Visiting Writers are brought to campus through the Shapiro Center for Creative Writing and Criticism and the English Department to offer readings and craft talks, contributing to an inclusive atmosphere of inspiration and support. The Reading Series has a history spanning many decades now and generally takes place on Wednesdays, 6pm in the historic Russell House. It is coordinated by Douglas Arthur Martin, Associate Professor of English and Associate Director of Creative Writing, and Hirsh Sawhney, Associate Professor of English and Director of Creative Writing.
