John J. Schread Author Series

Through the generosity of alumni, parents, and friends of Notre Dame we have been able to have wonderful and accomplished visitors join us at Notre Dame and engage with our students as part of the John J. Schread '62 Author Events. We are pleased to announce that our 2022 speaker will be Ben Phillipe. 

Philippe is a New York-based writer and screenwriter, born in Haiti and raised in Montreal, Canada. He has a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Columbia University and an MFA in fiction and screenwriting from the Michener Center for Writers in Austin, Texas. He also teaches film studies and screenwriting at Barnard College.  Phillippe’s book The Field Guide to the North American Teenager was on ND’s summer reading list; it received excellent reviews from the students who chose to read it.  His presentation will be virtual on March 30, 2022, during our Community Period. 

Donations have made this experience possible for our young men and, with your support, we can continue to bring these unique presentations to Notre Dame. We invite all donors to join us virtually in the presentation! 

Please contact the Development Office at Notre Dame for more details at 203.937.3250 or or for additional information on making your gift by check.
