Durham Literary Tour

23 Stops

Durham is rich in writers. Two teams from the Durham community set out to capture some of that history. The first team were Duke retirees from the OLLI program together with Durham middle school students. The second group was the first-ever class integrating Duke students and Durham Public School high school students. This tour highlights notable and successful works and authors, with select readings from their texts and a geographic landmark reflecting their presence in our community.
