The Norwich University Writers Series kicked off the academic year on September 28 with a reading by National Book Award winner Will Alexander. In the Kreitzberg Library Todd Multipurpose Room, Alexander read to a packed house of more than 75, speaking on subjects such as writing a book with a female protagonist, writing a book with a Latino protagonist, and writing a book in which a child is a world ambassador.

The fall series also featured environmental activist and writer Jonathan Mingle, who read from his book, Fire and Ice: Soot, Solidarity, and Survival on the Roof of the World, a nonfiction narrative about black-carbon pollution in the Asian continent.
