Event Description
Walks for Writers offers students the chance to step away from their desks and into nature during the four weeks leading up to Dean’s Date. Simple in aspiration, but scientific in design, these walks will be led by librarians at Princeton University Library, giving writers the opportunity to speak informally about their ideas and challenges as semester deadlines approach, or to simply incorporate movement and nature into this intense period of study.

Walkers will meet in the lobby of Firestone Library at the appointed time, with the exception of the walk on May 4, for which we will meet at the Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve.

April 11 at 1:30pm
April 19 at 3:00pm
April 25 at 1:30pm
May 1 at 3:00pm
May 4 at 1:00pm: Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve
Please note: routes are to be determined. Campus walks will take approx. one hour and the walk at Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve will take approx. two hours. As walks are intended to be in nature, they will only be partially paved.
