Inspired by a book sharing trend on social media, “Books at Rollins” shares a new book (each month) across campus. With the idea of “take it, read it, leave it,” each book relates to an event happening on campus. Each book will have a bright blue sticker signifying that it is a part of this new program. Be sure to tag Rollins College if you find a book! You can contact Jen Atwell for more information.
The library enthusiastically supports the Rollins Writers Conference. The Conference provides an opportunity for talented fiction writers and poets to apply themselves to their craft and art. The seven-day conference includes workshops, craft talks, panel discussions, manuscript reviews, and readings by some of the most engaging and celebrated authors writing today.
