WLT has also invited internationally renowned photographer Phil Borges to speak at the opening of the exhibition Stirring the Fire: A Global Movement to Empower Women and Girls. The Puterbaugh Festivals are part of a forty-year tradition through which WLT brings world-class writers (often future winners of the Nobel Prize) to the University of Oklahoma campus for an international symposium, public talks, and engagement with students and the general public.
