Next time you’re in line at the KAF, take a look at the Spring 2019 exhibit of new books by Dartmouth authors, on topics ranging from early colonial (US) history, to heterocyclic chemistry, to teaching leadership.  But wait, there's more! Check out “Holding Court,” a series of short interviews with the authors, published throughout the term.  And you won't want to miss the spring’s blockbuster book talk featuring Colin G.

Wendel Cox, librarian for History, English, and historian of the North American West.

Books by Dartmouth Authors for the Summer display in KAFWhat are you reading this summer?  Need a suggestion? How about a portrait of Vietnam War soldiers, an exploration of fly-fishing and physics, or an account of labor conditions of low-wage workers worldwide?  A study of a 50-year research project in a New Hampshire forest, a history of the Hebrew language, or a guide to help conquer your migraines, once and for all?  The Summer 2018 display of New Books by Dartmouth Authors is now up in the King Arthur Flour Café, showcasing a fascinating array of research and scholarship from members of the Dartmouth community.

Want more?  Check out “Holding Court,” a series of short interviews with the authors, appearing Mondays throughout the term.  And I hope you can come to this summer’s book talk, on July 18 at 4:30 PM in the East Reading Room of Baker-Berry, with Marcelo Gleiser, professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth.  Author of The Simple Beauty of the Unexpected: A Natural Philosopher's Quest for Trout and the Meaning of Everything, Gleiser’s lyrical prose explores the physics – and bigger philosophical questions – pertaining to fly-fishing, a hobby he picked up after watching a class on the Dartmouth Green.

Next time you’re in line at the KAF (which, by the way, reopens on June 21), take a look at this summer’s selection.  The Dartmouth Library has a copy of each one of these books for check-out, or, look for them in a library or bookstore near you:
