This year marks 25 years of the Schoenfeldt Distinguished Visiting Writers Series, founded by the late Rev. Arthur Schoenfeldt, C.S.C. (pictured) and his late sister, Suzanne Fields, in honor of their parents. Since writer Barry Lopez inaugurated the Schoenfeldt Writers Series in 1989, the University of Portland has hosted many of the finest writers to campus for classroom visits and public readings. Some of the past Schoenfeldt Writers include William Stafford, Ursula Le Guin, Peter Matthiessen, Sally Tisdale, Terry Tempest Williams, Kim Stafford, and more. The 2013-14 Schoenfeldt Writers are David James Duncan and Louise Gluck. For more information contact Carolyn Connolly, museum coordinator, at 8038 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
