Booth Library to launch "Authors@EIU" series

Booth Library invites the campus and community to join us in celebrating the success of our published faculty with the launch of a new speaker series this Spring semester, Authors@EIU. Six featured authors have been selected for three Spring 2024 Authors@EIU events to celebrate the research, scholarship and creative success of EIU faculty who have recently achieved publication of a book, or comparable accomplishment.  


The library recognizes and celebrates the diverse, robust community of EIU teaching faculty who are contributing to scholarship or popular learning, through this series and plans to add the featured publications to the library’s collection.
