It is always wonderful to welcome you to campus, but there is one
upcoming event, in particular, that I wanted you to know about, even
before we start promoting it more widely. Our Search for Meaning Book
Festival will take place Saturday, Feb. 15, and features more than 40
prominent authors. Both keynote speakers are Pulitzer Prize-winning
journalists and accomplished authors—Katherine Boo wrote the highly
acclaimed 2013 book Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope
in a Mumbai Undercity and Isabel Wilkerson, authored the award-winning
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration. Originally
launched by our School of Theology and Ministry in 2009, Search for
Meaning has quickly become one of the most highly regarded events of its
kind with the festival attracting an ever-growing and enthusiastic
following. In addition to the general sessions and keynote
presentations, the festival offers book signings, interactive
experiences and more. Attendees regularly express how much they
appreciate the opportunity to hear from some of the leading writers and
scholars of our day and to contemplate with others their place and
purpose in the world.
We are pleased that the festival has struck a chord with so many in our region.Because of its increasing stature as a signature event for SU, the festival is now being presented on a university-wide basis. I encourage you to read more about the festival and the authors we will be welcoming at Search for Meaning. Registration will open on January 15th. If you are interested in playing a volunteer role, we would welcome your service.
