Mission Statement

VWS LOGO

The Visiting Writers Series of Lenoir-Rhyne University believes that reading is an essential element in the creation of vibrant communities. We invite authors to read from their own works in a relaxed environment before university and community audiences. We believe the beauty and power of words help us make sense of the world. Children's writers, mystery writers, essayists, poets, novelists -- all participate in this celebration of the written and spoken word. We believe that a community of readers is a better community.
