This year's Reid Writers of Color Reading Series featuring Pulitzer-prize playwright, Lynn Nottage was a major success. Events at both Lincoln Center and Rose Hill featured staged readings and question and answer sessions on Nottage's acclaimed play, Ruined. Over 200 students attended the public events. In addition, Ms. Nottage conducted a Master Class on creative process for Fordham students at the Lincoln Center campus.
The inaugural Reid Family Prize, given for excellence in creative expression and commitment to social justice, was presented to Fordham student newspaper, The Observer.
