Some of the authors in attendance included Eric Smith, Dr. David Young, Dr. Kevin Wamsley, Dr. Mathias Nilges, and Dr. Mark Leeming.

Scholarship was in the spotlight on March 29 as members of the StFX community gathered for the Third Annual Celebration of StFX Authors.

The event, held in the Hall of the Clans in the Angus L. Macdonald Library, celebrated StFX faculty authors who have published books in 2007.

The Offices of the Academic Vice-President and the Associate Vice-President of Research and Graduate Studies hosted the event.

Dr. Richard Isnor, Associate VP Research and Graduate Studies, welcomed all to the event.

“It’s a great accomplishment for any scholar,” he said. “It’s a lot of work and it’s very worthwhile to recognize and celebrate this accomplishment,” he said as he noted the authors represented a good cross section of departments from across campus.
