Faculty Book Fair: May 13


This spring, Rutgers English will mark Alumni Reunion Weekend with our first Faculty Book Fair.

Come join us in celebrating recent books by professors, and hear the authors give brief introductions to their works. Dean Barry V. Qualls will moderate the discussion, we’ll have copies of all the books available for purchase. It’ll be a great opportunity to mingle with professors, students, and fellow alumni of the Department. 

Our Faculty Book Fair will take place on Saturday May 13 from 2 to 5 p.m. Alumni from all classes are welcome to attend, for any portion of the event. The Fair will be held at the Plangere Writing Center, on the third floor of Murray Hall.

If you think you might come, please rsvp at 732-932-7612 or, so we’ll know how many people to expect and can send you an event program in advance. We hope to see many of you there!

For a full listing of faculty scheduled to appear, see our Alumni Events Calendar.
