Notre Dame Literary Festival

The Notre Dame Literary Festival is a three-day event organized in conjunction with the Creative Writing Program, Welsh Family Hall, Notre Dames, and Spoken Word ND. In the past, SUB has brought such distinguished authors as Gwendolyn Brooks, Joseph Heller, Joyce Carol Oates, Kurt Vonnegut, Stephen Chbosky (Perks of being a Wallflower), and Scott McEwen (American Sniper). We are proud to continue this tradition with this year's three-day festival.

Monday, April 4 - Author Lecture by Pulitzer Prize winner Junot Diaz in Debartolo 102 at 7 PM. No tickets required. 

Tuesday, April 5 - Creative Writing's 4th Annual Wham! Bam! Poetry Slam in Snite Museum Annenberg Auditorium at 5:30 PM

Thursday, April 7 - SUB and Welsh Family Hall's Human Library in the Notre Dame Room of LaFortune from 6-9 PM

Attendees of the Human Library event will have the opportunity to loan human "books" and learn from the stories of these faculty, staff, and students in an effort to promote diversity and inclusion on campus. A $3 donation for the Human Library is greatly appreciated and all proceeds will go to the Reading for Life mentoring program.
