    Call to Participate: A Celebration of Campus Authors

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

    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.

    This call to participate is going out to all 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 published at any time that has never been featured in one of these celebrations

    Use the author participation form to sign up:

    A reception featuring books and their authors will take place on October 21, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. in the Cleary Center Great Hall. Books will also be on display in Murphy Library for several weeks after the event.

    This Celebration of Campus Authors program is sponsored by Murphy Library and the Provost's Office, who are happy to partner with the Alumni Association for this year’s event.
