E&H Homecoming Announces New Event: A Book Signing!

Posted by Monica Hoel
E&H alumni and faculty members will be selling and signing their original work.

Our 2019 Homecoming event will be punctuated by a brand new event: a book signing at the campus book store (“The Merc”).

Ten different books and 11 authors will be featured at this inaugural event on October 19. The event is slated to be on the lawn of the book store from 11 am-Noon (Rain Location: Macado’s Gazebo).

Topics run the gamut, and organizers are pleased with the variety. E&H Alumni Director Monica Hoel is amazed by the range of titles.”We are really grateful that so many alumni and faculty have responded to the idea, and we think everyone will be thrilled to see so many great books. If you’re a reader, you can’t possibly not find a book at this event that is appealing! And if you’re not a reader, you should come by and just meet some really great people!”

Some of this year’s featured books are by current and former faculty members, giving visiting alumni a great chance to catch up with favorite professors. 

Click here for a full list of authors featured at our 2019 Book Signing. Then plan to make the book store an important part of your Homecoming plan!
