This program is part of the College’s free Writers Read series, which brings area authors to COD’s campus for readings and discussions.

For 18 years, the Writers Read series has brought dozens of nationally acclaimed writers to College of DuPage, including Stuart Dybek, Eboo Patel, Luis Urrea, Scott Russell Sanders and Leigh Stein. This event is sponsored by COD’s Creative Writing and Religious Studies programs, as well as the Liberal Arts Division.
