Business Writing Lecturer Honored for Book
March 22, 2013
"Business Communication: Process and Product," co-authored by Dana Loewy, lecturer in business writing, will be honored with a William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association during the organization's 26th annual conference in June.
Text and Academic Authors created the McGuffey longevity awards in 1993 to recognize textbooks and learning materials whose excellence has been demonstrated over time. To be nominated, a work must have been in print 15 years and still be selling. The honor is named after the author of McGuffey's Eclectic Readers, which first appeared in 1836 and were in print until 1921.
The book, co-authored with Mary Ellen Guffey, emerita professor of business from Los Angeles Pierce College, is the only textbook to be honored this year. The seventh edition was published in August 2010 by Cengage Learning/South-Western.
