was the 13th Zale Writer-in-Residence

Thanks to all students, faculty and staff whose energy and committment to writing, literature and performance made the 1997 program such a success. Thanks to Deb Margolin for all she so thoughtfully and powerfully offered to each individual with whom she came in contact during her oh-so-brief week on campus.
