Our Reid Writers of Color Series is an annual event sponsored by the English Department that is specifically dedicated to spotlighting the work of a writer of color. Fordham faculty is encouraged to adopt the Reid book next semester in your classes and attend our April 25th Reid events at Rose Hill with your students. Our 2017 Reid Writer is Robin Coste Lewis who won the 2015 National Book Award for poetry for her book Voyage of the Sable Venus.
To assist in your teaching of the Reid book, here is a Teaching Reid Books webpage which contains faculty presentations from the last amazing Reid-Mullarkey Forum, articles, artwork, video and more. Every year we have around 5 - 6 faculty members adopt the Reid book. We hope to surpass that number this year and every year going forward.
