With the unveiling of a new history book about the College—“North Central College: 150 Years. A Promising Start.”—the campus community will have multiple opportunities during the weekend-long Sesquicentennial and Homecoming Celebrations to hear from the authors, purchase the book and have the authors sign copies.
Authors are North Central College staff and faculty members Kimberly Butler, College archivist; Ann Durkin Keating, Dr. C. Frederick Toenniges Professor of History; and Pierre Lebeau, professor of history emeritus. The public is invited to hear the authors—including Chuck Savage, photographer of a new expanded edition of “A College in Its Community”—discuss their books from 2 to 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, at Meiley-Swallow Hall, followed by a book signing from 3 to 3:30 p.m.
The four also will sign books on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 10 to 11 a.m. at the College Bookstore, and from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Homecoming Tent near Championship Plaza in front of Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium. Each book will be available for $39.95 hardcover, $29.95 softcover at the North Central College Bookstore and at each of these events.
