Release Date: 2008-06-04

The fire that destroyed Our Lady of the Lake University’s main building has struck a chord with many San Antonians. Despite their losses, OLLU has proven they’re determined to rebuild and the community is rallying around them. The Southwest School of Art & Craft hosts a literary event to benefit OLLU’s English Department, in which approximately 35 poets, writers, and presenters will speak or read. Acclaimed writers Sandra Cisneros (right), John
Phillip Santos, and Cary Clack top the bill, which includes wordsmiths from area campuses including St. Mary’s, Trinity, Incarnate Word, and San Antonio College. Jose Ruben de Leon will lead the invocation and benediction, while Naomi Shihab Nye and Marian Haddad will emcee. All donations appreciated, 2pm Sunday, Southwest School of Art & Craft, 300 Augusta,
(210) 224-1848.
