The theme for this year's symposium is "Overcoming the Silence: To speak out when 'It warrants no stir.'" which is inspired by Eudora Welty's story "The Demonstrators," which was published in The New Yorker in 1966 and appears in The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty.

The names below are the list of authors for this year, including when available, links to author websites where you can learn a little more about this year's line-up. Don't forget that we will be selling books at Welty Book Table during the symposium.
