Conversations with Williams Faculty about Writing and Publishing

Organized by the library and co-sponsored by the Dean of the Faculty's office, the Tuesday Teas series celebrates Williams authors and honors their writing and creative work. On four Tuesdays after spring break, we gather for tea and listen to faculty- authors talk about a recent publication/production and reflect on the joys and trepidations of the writing, creating and publishing process.
