The Pereira Distinguished Lecture is part of a series that annually brings a prominent writer to campus to give a public lecture and teach master classes for UCI’s literary journalism students. The series is funded by Susan and William Pereira.

UCI’s Literary Journalism Program was created to meet the needs of a growing number of students who wish to read, study and write nonfiction prose that adopts techniques of fiction. Directed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Barry Siegel, the program provides students with a foundation in nonfiction-feature writing as well as literary history. The Literary Journalism Program is housed in the Department of English in UCI’s School of Humanities.
