“My main ambition is to continue contributing to this field, as a writer, as a thinker, and to be in a position to help mentor students.”
Eleanor Henderson said the writing department looks for acclaimed authors who will challenge new writers and help them with their own projects.
“Epic Yarns” features illustrations of original needle-felt versions of iconic characters including Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and Chewbacca.
Associate professor of writing Jack Wang will be recognized by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair for his needle-point illustrations in his book series “Cozy Classics.”
Fierce passion and an unparalleled determination are characteristics shared by both the people in Eleanor Henderson’s debut novel “Ten Thousand Saints” and the author herself.
