Trolley, Fall 2019

For our Fall 2019 edition, we asked readers to share their impressions of our fall Visiting Writer events, including the Albany Book Festival held in September at the University at Albany. 

Featured writers include UAlbany students, community members, and adjunct professors, these essays carry forward Writers Institute founder William Kennedy's idea that Trolley be accessible, not academic. 

We hope you enjoy the variety of perspectives and opinions shared in Trolley.
