Lowell Humanities Series
“There is nothing like an author reading from his or her own works,” said Francis Sweeney, S.J., who founded what is now the Lowell Humanities Series in 1957. Among the distinguished writers, artists, performers, and scholars the series has brought to Boston College have been Robert Frost, Margaret Mead, T.S. Eliot, Maya Angelou, Robert Penn Warren, Joyce Carol Oates, Susan Sontag, and Seamus Heaney.
Carlo Rotella, director of American Studies and professor of English, directs the Lowell Humanities Series. He can be reached at email@example.com. You may also contact Katie Daily-Bruckner at 617-552-2203 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

All events are free and open to the public. Directions and parking information.
