Each director brings a vision to the ODU Literary Festival, and for 25 years that vision has changed about every two years. Four of those former directors, Evelina Galang, William B. Patrick, Peggy Shumaker, and Wayne Ude, show us, once again, their vision-making powers - this time through a reading of their own works.
