The Schoenfeldt Distinguished Writers Series was founded in 1988 by Rev. Arthur Schoenfeldt, C.S.C., of the University's Holy Cross community, and his sister, University regent Suzanne Schoenfeldt Fields, in honor of their late parents. Twice each year, Schoenfeldt guest writers offer a public reading and also visit students and faculty during their time on The Bluff, especially those in literature, science, and journalism classes.
Spring guest readings are part of ReadUP, University of Portland's annual celebration of literature in which the entire local campus community—students, faculty, and staff—are invited to read "one book together.
