Reunion 2013: Alumni Publications at the Library
Writing has been a hallmark of a Simon’s Rock education from the very start, so it’s not surprising that so many alumni have produced a book or two…or more. This month, we’re featuring books by alumni.
Simon’s Rock authors are also recognized for the high quality of their work. Some examples: Tanya Marcuse received a Guggenheim Fellowship that resulted in her book Undergarments and Armor, Henry Alford received a Thurber Prize for Big Kiss, Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home was named Time’s #1 book of 2006, Veronica Chambers was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts fiction award, and the 2010 Criticos Prize was awarded to Zachary Mason for his novel, The Lost Books of the Odyssey.
But it’s not all about books – we’ll also be featuring music, films and other non-book publications. The library collects as many alumni publications as possible and they have a special subject heading in our catalog (Simon’s Rock Authors), so if you know of a book that isn’t in our collection contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
