We Live in Water, by Jess Walter
The Southeastern English Department is proud to feature Jess Walter, an award-winning author, and his short story collection We Live in Water for the Fall 2015 Common Read.
In the weeks leading up to the main event, the Writing Center hosted several speaker series events. Most of the events held this semester took the form of instructional panels, chaired by Southeastern professors, who gave insight and perspective on aspects of Walter's works.
