A love of literature and a deep belief in the “flesh and blood and heart” of human beings led Donald Windham to establish the Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell Literature Prizes at Yale University. This year, the prize has been awarded to eight writers in four genres. The Windham-Campbell Festival, held this year Sept. 13–15, will host the winners in a series of panels, workshops and lectures. As a lead up to the festival, WKND has curated a summer reading list for our readers. Most of these books are available online, at the Yale Bookstore or at Atticus. Exciting new content will be posted all summer on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram, so stay tuned!
