Since 1985, Bryn Mawr College has hosted major American and international authors whose works have earned Pulitzer Prizes, National Book Awards, and many other distinctions.

In the almost 30 years since presenting its inaugural readings by Etheridge Knight and Toby Olson in the spring of 1985, the Bryn Mawr Reading Series has brought major American and international writers in all literary genres to engage with students and the Philadelphia area community. Series guests visit the College’s Creative Writing Program workshops and present free public readings from their work.
