Authors' Reception 2013

The Fifteenth Annual Authors' Reception, sponsored by the President's Office, the L.V. Johnson Library, and the SPSU Foundation, was held on Thursday, October 31st from 3-4 PM in the Library Rotunda.

Various publications authored by faculty, staff, and students were on display, including collaborative publications and a digital presentation from SPSU's Research Learning Community.

Aaron Wimer, L.V. Johnson Library's Head of Reference and Research, introduced the event, followed by an address from SPSU President Dr. Lisa Rossbacher, who congratulated the SPSU community on producing an excellent and wide-ranging body of publications.

This year's main speaker was Ana Terry, SPSU’s Fulbright Scholar in Residence for 2013-2014, who delivered an incisive speech on the convergence of design and technology. Ms. Terry is an expert in the areas of graphic design, digital arts, and is an Artist Affiliate with the Dunedin School of Art in New Zealand. 

After Ms. Terry's address, guests and authors mingled and enjoyed snacks. Both L.V. Johnson Library's new Library Director, Nancy Colyar, and previous Library Director, Joyce Mills, attended this year's reception.
