Reading and Book Signing with Carmen Giménez

March 28, 2024 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Carmen Gimenez Spring 2024 Visiting Writer

Carmen Giménez, our spring Visiting Writer, will be on campus March 26-29. We welcome the Walker’s community, as well as the general public, to attend a reading with Ms. Giménez on Thursday, March 28 at 7:00 p.m. in Ferguson Theatre. Refreshments and book signing to follow.

The Ethel Walker School Visiting Writer Seminar is a semester-long course in which students have the rare and special opportunity to immerse themselves in a study of one writer’s works, something few students of English at the undergraduate and graduate levels experience. Throughout the semester, students read a critical mass of texts by that writer, developing a deep and abiding knowledge of that writer’s style, form(s), and ideas. The course culminates with a visit by the author to Walker’s. Through master classes, writing workshops, and readings to the community, students are invited to ask the questions that only the author can answer. At the end of each semester, students in the Visiting Writer Seminar collaborate on a final project in which they conceptualize, layout, design, and publish a class anthology of works, inspired by the writings of the visiting writer.
