Sick Pilgrim has partnered with the University of Notre Dame to create a new conference that we hope will invigorate and inspire contemporary Catholic writers and artists.
On June 22-24, 2017, “Trying to Say God” will bring together both well-known and emerging writers, artists and musicians for a new kind of Catholic literary conference–one that is open to, but not limited to, those working in academia.
Our confirmed featured speakers include:
Keynote Mary Karr, New York Times best-selling author of The Liar’s Club, Cherry, Lit, and The Art of Memoir
Tim Powers, World Fantasy Award winning writer of the novels Last Call and Declare
Br. Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican Observatory and author of Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial? And Other Questions from the Astronomer’s Inbox at the Vatican Observatory
Heather King, author of Stripped, Stumble and Shirt of Flame
Mary Syzbist, National Book Award winning author of Incarnadine
Plus Natalie Diaz, Suzanne Wolfe, Randy Boyagoda, Kaya Oakes, Jerry Harp, Sam Rocha, Valerie Sayers, Gregory Wolfe, Jon Sweeney, Jonathan Ryan, Jessica Mesman Griffith and David Griffith.
