April 3: Crimson Reads Celebrates Faculty-Authored Books


A faculty author’s road to publication may only be fully appreciated by the librarians who, whether offering information or an ear, walk the same road to bring that book to light. Trevor Bond, head of WSU’s Manuscripts, Archives and Special Collections, followed one faculty member’s progress for eight years.

To recognize the achievements of those who’ve published a book from 2010 to the present, WSU Libraries will hold the inaugural “Crimson Reads: A Celebration of WSU Faculty Authored Books” at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, April 3, in the Terrell Atrium. Refreshments and musical entertainment will be offered.

The event program includes a welcome and introduction from Beth Blakesley, associate dean of the WSU Libraries; opening remarks by Frances McSweeney, vice provost for faculty affairs and Regents professor of psychology; and an address by Matthew McCluskey, chair of the WSU Department of Physics and Astronomy.
