Celebration of Campus Authors set for Oct. 21; sign up by Oct. 1 to participate

Have you published a book? If you have, consider participating in this year’s Celebration of Campus Authors.

The call to participate is going out to UW-L faculty, staff and alumni who have:

  • Authored, co-authored, compiled, edited, co-edited, translated or illustrated a published book during the past two years (since the last Celebration)
  • Or have published a book that has never been featured in one of these celebrations

A reception featuring books and their authors is set for 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 21, in the Strelczyk Great Hall in the Cleary Alumni & Friends Center. Books will also be on display in Murphy Library for several weeks after the event.

The Celebration of Campus Authors provides an opportunity for the campus community to explore and discuss books published by campus authors from all disciplines. It provides a forum in which accomplished authors can share their experiences related to writing and publishing, future authors can learn more about the process, and all can benefit from the exchange of ideas. This year, the Alumni Association is participating, and many alumni have already registered their books for the event.

Use the author participation form to sign up by no later than Wednesday, Oct. 1, at https://uwlacrosse.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3mxgtTAOcQvISGx.

This Celebration of Campus Authors program is sponsored by Murphy Library and the Provost’s Office, in partnership with the Alumni Association for this year’s event.
