Every spring, Villanova University hosts a diverse group of renowned writers who give readings during the Department of English’s Annual Literary Festival. This is a semester-long celebration of literature featuring novelists and poets from across the globe.
All of the authors read from their work during the festival events, which are free and open to the public. These events are held in various locations and with the support of several co-sponsoring departments, programs, and groups from accross campus, including Falvey Memorial Library. The readings are generally followed by a reception and book-signing.
