“Thank you so much for the wonderful talk you gave at Facing Race 2007. You provided the perfect combination of inspiration and reality-check to take us into our first annual conference.”

- Applied Research Center

“Thank you for your visit! We could not have had a better opening for our series than your talk and conversation with the audience. We were delighted, but not surprised, that your lecture drew such a large audience. The discussion suited the theme perfectly. It was a special pleasure to hear the many people who know your books and characters so well discuss them with you. The long lines of people waiting for book signatures were a sign of engagement we don't often see at a university lecture. We were also very pleased to have such a good community presence for the event. The evening provided the kind of campus-community tie we hoped for when we planned the series.”

“Walter Mosley's visit was a great success. He entertained an audience of over 600 people at Friday night's reading, and taught well over 300 students in the class session on Friday morning. He was charming, wise, and very funny at both events. Everyone at Marygrove is thrilled, and so are our donors and sponsors.”

“What a wonderful evening! We had over 500 in the audience (that on a night when the weather was bad). Walter signed books until 10:00 pm. All in all, we loved him.”

“Mr. Mosley was superb! With the Iraq crisis looming as a backdrop to our lives, Mr. Mosley gave folks a chance to voice their opinions of the current state of things. The Q and A session went very well. People were (are) hungry to discuss what's going on, and I love the way Mr. Mosley had answers but didn't want to come off as an expert on world affairs. He made sense. He made us laugh by mixing humor and good common sense.”

- University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

“Your reading and question/answer period to more than 300 people contributed to our core objectives for this program. The Writers and Readers series is intended to expose the community to great writers, great books and to be a catalyst for community conversation around important ideas. You provided the Cleveland community with that opportunity for social interaction.”
