University of Dallas presents McDermott Lectureship: Anthony Doerr
The University of Dallas' annual Eugene McDermott Lecture will welcome 2015 Pulitzer winner Anthony Doerr. Doerr's latest novel, the runaway New York Times bestseller All the Light We Cannot See, received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction and was a finalist for the National Book Award.
In collaboration with the Diocese of Dallas and Irving Independent School District, this year also marks the start of a new university-wide reading initiative, UD Reads. During the course of the 2018-19 academic year, the university will sponsor a series of lectures, art exhibits, panel discussions and other activities in association with the program, culminating with Doerr's visit as the 2019 Eugene McDermott lecturer.
