The mission of the McBride Center is to engage and inspire students, faculty, and the community in outstanding programs that explore the interrelatedness of Christian faith and literature. A central part of this mission is the annual McBride Lecture for Faith and Literature.
Past speakers include winners of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award and the Bellwether Prize for social justice, as well as those who serve on the juries of major prizes, including the Nobel Prize. Click the links in the adjacent menu for information on our previous McBride Lecture guests.
