The Cal Poly Humboldt Authors Hall, located on the 2nd floor outside of the Library Fishbowl, is a permanent, physical collection of books, articles, CDs, and DVDs recognizing Humboldt faculty, staff, students, and alumni for their scholarship and creative work. Each spring, we celebrate works published during the previous year.

The 8th Annual Celebration of Authors will be online, Monday, February 14th from 3-4:30pm.

This year, we're also including virtual panels of people sharing knowledge about writing, publishing, and marketing Tuesday-Friday. More information here.
