Program of the 2013 Eudora Welty Writers' Symposium

The symposium is scheduled for October 24th, 25th, and 26th, 2013. The theme for this year's symposium is "'Alive as Ever, on the Brink of Oblivion': Southern Writers in the Eye of the Storm" and is inspired by Eudora Welty's last novel "Losing Battles."

The names below are the list of authors for this year, including when available, links to author websites where you can learn a little more about this year's line-up. Don't forget that we will be selling books at Welty Book Table during the symposium.
