Each year since 1985, the Zale-Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence Program has brought a renowned woman writer to campus.
Coordinated through the Newcomb College Institute, and facilitated by a committee composed of Newcomb-Tulane College students, faculty, and NCI staff, the Zale Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence program was established by Dana Zale Gerard, NC ‘85, and made possible by an annual gift from the M.B. and Edna Zale Foundation of Dallas, Texas. Since 2006, the Program has been generously supported by Barnes & Noble College Booksellers. In 2010, the program became fully endowed through a gift from Martha McCarty Kimmerling, NC’63, and known as the Zale-Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence program.
