Literary House Events
Each year, The Rose O’Neill Literary House offers two themed semesters of programming. Recent themes include “The Verbal & the Visual” and “Queer Voices.” In 2016-2017, the Literary House will focus on the subjects of “Living Writers” and “The Personal & the Political.”
The Literary House also partners with the English Department and the Sophie Kerr Committee to host the Sophie Kerr Lecture Series, which includes visits by poets, fiction and nonfiction writers, scholars, and imaginative thinkers from across disciplines.
