Speaking of Books... Conversations with Campus Authors

Speaking of Books... Conversations with Campus Authors features book talks by faculty authors from the University of Maryland. The series began in 2005 to highlight new books by faculty members from the College of Arts and Humanities. In 2007-2008 the series expanded to include all faculty members at the University of Maryland.

These free events are open to all members of the campus community as well as the general public. Each author answers questions following his or her talk and signs books, which are available for purchase. Light refreshments are served.
