Past Summer Writers in Residence have included Billy Collins, Joyce Carol Oates and Jhumpa Lahiri. The Institute is pleased to announce that novelist and cultural critic Edmund White will be the writer in residence for the sixth annual Summer Institute.

White will be in residence from June 12 to 26, 2015.
