Alumni Authors Featured in Exhibit

Throughout the month of June, The University of Scranton Alumni Authors Exhibit is on display in the Library’s 5th floor Heritage Room. The exhibit showcases books by more than a 100 alumni authors and includes many signed copies. 

The range of subjects varies greatly, encompassing alumni who became authors in their academic fields, nonfiction writers, novelists, children’s literature writers and historians. The earliest alumnus featured is the late Clarence Walton, ’37, 10th president of The Catholic University of America and the first layman to hold the position. The youngest graduate featured in the exhibit is Sarah M. Piccini, ’07, G’10, whose local history book, “Framing Faith,” provides a pictorial history of former churches in the Diocese of Scranton. 

We encourage you to explore this wonderful exhibit in June to celebrate our alumni and their important contributions in the publishing world.

If you have had your book published and would like to have a copy on file to display in the Weinberg Memorial Library, please mail a copy to The Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement, 800 Linden Street, Scranton, PA 18510.
