|40th anniversary Writers Conference T-shirts for sale|
In 2009, the UND Writers Conference will celebrate 40 years of literary tradition on the prairie. As part of the celebration, the English department is raising funds to support a John Little Memorial "Chair." This fund will provide financial support to bring a fiction writer to the UND Writer's Conference each year to fill the John Little Memorial Chair. As many will recall, Little was the brain behind the UND Writers Conference. It was his energy and vision that brought to campus such literary giants as Eudora Welty, Edward Albee, Thomas McGrath, Truman Capote, Alice Walker, Tom Wolfe, Leslie Silko, Megan Terry, August Wilson, and that's just a start.
The T-shirts are short-sleeved, black, and come in large and extra-large. On the front is the UND Writer's Conference logo, and on the back, listed by year, is a list of all the writers who have shared their words with us since 1970. It is truly an incredible roster, and would make a great gift for yourself or someone you know who is a Writers Conference regular.
Shirts are $16 and can be purchased in 110 Merrifield Hall.
This year's UND Writers Conference line-up of authors and schedule is now at http://writersconference.und.edu/index.html.
