The Florida State University community celebrated its faculty members who have gone through the rigors of having a book, score or CD published in 2020 and 2021 during FSU Authors Day on March 21.
FSU Authors Day celebrates FSU faculty who have published books, scores or CDs in the past year. Focusing on topics ranging from the history of the ancient town of Antioch to operationalizing culturally relevant leadership learning, this year’s published works represent endless hours of research and learning as well as sacrifice, dedication and grit. They also showcase the diversity and variety of scholarship at FSU.
This year’s reception took place at the Robert B. Bradley Reading Room in Strozier Library. Authors from both 2020 and 2021 were both invited to attend, but only the works published in 2021 were on display. FSU Provost Jim Clark delivered opening remarks.
“To write a book or compose an entire album and see it through to publication or release takes incredible drive and determination. And you did it while navigating all the challenges of the ongoing global pandemic,” Clark said. “This is a huge accomplishment, and your success reflects well on Florida State University. You should all be very proud.”
FSU faculty produced more than 60 academic press, trade, textbooks, workbooks, or e-books as well as edited collections, original creative work and CDs in 2021 and 55 such publications in 2020.
