A&S Books & Roses

Thursday, April 24, 2025, 4:30-6 p.m. | Humanities Commons

The A&S Dean’s Office is planning our third annual Books & Roses Celebration for this spring.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with our new tradition, which began in April 2023, Books & Roses is inspired by two annual international celebrations: 1) Saint George’s Day (“Sant Jordi”) in Catalonia, where literature and love are distinctly intertwined in a massive display and exchange of books and roses, and 2) UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day. Both are typically celebrated on April 23, which also happens to be the birthdate of Cervantes and Shakespeare.

The festivities will include cupcakes, refreshments, music, and roses. This year, we would like to feature and display all A&S faculty and staff books published between April 20, 2024 and April 20, 2025.

Please use this Google form to provide relevant information regarding your book publications (i.e., monographs, creative writing in book form, and edited volumes) by January 17, 2025. This will help us tremendously in planning the event.
