Forty-seven faculty members who recently published 42 books were honored Feb. 27 at Cal State Fullerton’s 13th annual Author Awards event.
“Writing is an act of love, but writing a book is much more than that,” said José L. Cruz, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “Writing a book is an act of generosity. Writing a book is an act of citizenship and it is an act of valor, in terms of the creation of knowledge. So, it is with great pride that we celebrate the work of Cal State Fullerton faculty members today.”
University Librarian Richard Pollard, who served as master of ceremonies, congratulated the authors, thanking them for their written works. Each faculty author was awarded a certificate and three — Erica L. Ball, associate professor of American studies; Jim Volz, professor of theatre and dance; and C. Jessie Jones, professor of health science — spoke about or read excerpts from their latest books.
