Read Books by Durst Lecturers

Books by the speakers in the Durst Lecture Series are on display at the Library (ongoing).

The Durst Distinguished Lecture Series features authors and writers of distinction, including an honorary chair who makes several visits to the college over the academic year and holds master classes for students. This year’s Roy & Shirley Durst Distinguished Chair in Literature is held by novelist Michael Chabon who will be giving a discussion and film screening Nov. 1 and Nov. 2.

Chabon is joined in the lecture series this year by Katie Kitamura, Hari Kunzru, Paul Beatty, Neil Gaiman, Elif Bautuman, Rachel Aviv and Porochista Khakpour. 

Come check out works by these authors from the Library’s display in front of our Reference Desk! The display is ongoing throughout the semester. All items on display may be checked out of the Library.

Books by Michael Chabon including Moonglow, Awesome Man, and Gentlemen of the Road
