The HSU Authors Hall, located on the 2nd floor outside of the Library Fishbowl, is a permanent, physical collection of books, articles, CDs, and DVDs recognizing HSU 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 at the HSU Library and online, Monday, February 14th from 3-4:30pm with an open mic from 4:30-5pm.

This year, we're also including virtual panels of people sharing knowledge about writing, publishing, and marketing Tuesday-Friday 12-12:50pm. More details to follow.
