Faith in Literature, A Festival of Contemporary Writers of the Spirit

Faith in Literature, A Festival of Contemporary Writers of the Spirit was a great success. Presented in collaboration with UNC Asheville and the Wake Forest University School of Divinity, this two-day event gathered 11 writers whose collective work deeply engages faith tradition or spiritual practice. About 70 people attended Pulitzer Prize-winning Isabel Wilkerson’s reading at 4pm and the 7pm open production of NPR’s “On Being” with Krista Tippett. Tippett, broadcaster and The New York Times best-selling author, moderated a conversation with Wilkerson recorded for her Peabody Award-winning public radio broadcast and podcast.
