New Alumni Book Corner


Our Alumni Book Corner is now online. Visit and see a bibliography of books by fellow Rutgers English alumni. You can also read our first feature profiles of four alumni authors: poet Barbara Crooker, celebrity assistant Bonnie Low-Kramen, mystery novelist Annette Meyers, and literary scholar Adam Potkay. When you're done reading the newsletter, head on over to our Alumni Book Corner for more great reading!

If you have a book we can add to our alumni bibliography, or if you would be interested in being interviewed for a feature profile, contact us by email at We hope you enjoy our new feature!
