Joy Williams: Honored Guest

The Washington University Libraries acquired the Joy Williams Papers in 2017, a significant milestone for its Modern Literature Collection.

Williams is one of this country’s most esteemed living writers, especially in the short story genre. Joy Williams also represents the first female fiction writer to house her papers at the university. Williams’ long-standing connection to other writers in the Modern Literature Collection and Washington University’s Writer’s Program makes her a perfect fit. The September 2021 publication of Harrow, her first novel in 21 years, presents the perfect time to recognize Joy Williams as our honored guest.

This digital exhibition is a companion to the onsite exhibition of the same name.
