The Michael C. Quinn Memorial Fiction Reading was established in 1984 by Scott Sommer (OWU, 1973) in memory of Michael Quinn who died in 1983. A Politics & Government major and member of Phi Beta Kappa at Ohio Wesleyan, Quinn graduated in 1974 with magna cum laude honors. As a student at OWU one of the things Michael enjoyed was attending the readings given by visiting fiction writers and so in his memory a writer is brought to Ohio Wesleyan each year with the annual income from this account.
