The memory and contributions of prominent Catholic American author and former Loyola faculty member Walker Percy will be honored by the Walker Percy Center for Writing and Publishing.
The Center will sponsor conferences, reading series, symposia, writing workshops, and a summer institute for young writers. The Center will also publish both creative and academic writing.
Throughout his writing career, Percy was an advocate for young struggling writers. Starting with Loyola students and members of the New Orleans community, Percy's mission to encourage young writers will live on in the Center.
The Walker Percy Center is privileged to partner with the Lindy Boggs National Center for Community Literacy and is grateful to the Boggs Center for donating office space to the Walker Percy Center. For more information about the Boggs Center, please contact executive director, Petrice Sams-Abiodun.
