School of Letters Summer Reading Series

Every summer the School of Letters invites our acclaimed faculty and other prominent, nationally recognized writers and scholars to read their work and speak about the writing life.

Readings are held at Gailor Hall in the newly-named Naylor Auditorium at 4:30 PM unless otherwise noted, with a reception following in Gailor Atrium. We are pleased this summer to partner with Tower Community Bank, the Blake and Bailey Family Fund, and the Friends of the Library. Most readings are on Wednesday, but note that the event with Jill McCorkle is on a Thursday.

Archives Exhibit: Turf, Tickets, Traditions: A look into Sewanee Sports History

April 15 - August 2, 2024

Athletics at Sewanee have a long, deep history that reaches beyond our wins and losses. This exhibition uncovers forgotten stories in Sewanee athletics such as the former synchronized swimming team, a proposed ski hill, and a place crash at the golf course, but also touches upon our greatest sporting moments on and off the field. 

This exhibit was curated by the students of Professor Alison Miller's Introduction to Museum Studies course.
