Authors

The Contemporary American Authors Lecture Series is in its twenty-first year.

This series at Marygrove College is an annual event bringing a nationally-known author to our campus for a public lecture and seminar with students.

It began when the late Frederick P. Currier, a former Marygrove College trustee, attended a reception on campus and remarked that he would like to bring a national writer to Marygrove for a weekend. Mr. Currier’s start-up check soon followed his suggestion, and in 1989 nearly 600 guests of the College heard Gloria Naylor inaugurate the series.
