A former Franklin colleague near and dear to many of us returns to campus this week to read from his new memoir, It Is Written. Welcome back, Phil:

Award-winning author Philip Lee Williams will read from his latest autobiography, "It Is Written: My Life in Letters." The book covers Williams' 30-year career and tells the story of his creative life in an open, jaunty and often hilarious autobiography. Presented by UGA Libraries.

Over a 30-year career as a published author of fiction, poetry and essays, Williams has become one of the South's most-honored writers.

A wonderful and prolific science writer for the college for many years, Williams was responsible for helping bring a lot of great research news out into the world. As my immediate predecessor in the college, I am especially indebted to Phil, the great work he did and that we try to continue here everyday. Congratulations to him on the new book and we look forward to this reading.
