*Walker Percy Centennial:  Pilgrimage in Literature*


April 28-30, 2016
Montreat College, Montreat, NC 28757

Keynoters: Farrell O’Gorman, Belmont Abbey College
Jim Wildeman, Covenant College, emeritus

Like Binx Bolling in Walker Percy’s first novel, /The Moviegoer,/ 
literary characters often seek relationship with the God of the Bible.  
They feel detached from affairs in the material world.  Pilgrims sense a 
call from God to pursue him in spite of the unbelief surrounding them.

Essays will be considered from a variety of authors.  Topics should 
pursue the intersection of faith and literature. Creative writing 
presentations are welcome.

Undergraduate Research essays are invited; the Thursday evening session 
is devoted to them.

Please submit completed essays to Rich Gray <rgray at montreat.edu>
by January 10, 2016
