John Oliver Killens Reading Series

The John Oliver Killens Reading Series is a testament to the legacy of the late John Oliver Killens to provide authors, poets, and scholars, and writers of the African Diaspora with opportunities to showcase their work and engage the audience in stimulating conversations. The John Oliver Killens (JOK) Reading Series offers a platform for well-regarded authors as well as newly discovered writers to discuss their work and the craft of writing; to read from recently published work; and to discuss issues related to writing and publishing with the college community and the general public.
