The 2016 Authors Lectures

Wayne Harrison - The Spark and the Drive

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Each year OSU Faculty publish a remarkable range of literary contributions.  Publication of these books is an important dimension to faculty creativity that goes through a rigorous peer review process and is an important part of validating their work.  OSU authors will be honored during two authors lectures  in April at which time all OSU authors will be acknowledged and information regarding their literary work will be available for guests.
