Jereld R. Nicholson Library

The English Department and the Jerald R. Nicholson Library co-sponsor the Readings and the Nick series, which with each academic year brings a handful of nationally-acclaimed poets and writers to Linfield's McMinnville campus, where they speak with students and faculty and give a free public reading.
