About the University Libraries Summer Author Series

The 2016 Summer Author Series will feature sustainability in many forms.  We will host three events, two author readings and a reading of poems, reflections and short stories about the New River.   Authors featured include Janet Larsen and Jay Leutze.  Short works will be presented by Chris Arvidson, Julie Townsend and Scot Pope.  The series is sponsored by the Richard T. Barker Friends of the Library.

Appalachian’s leadership in sustainability is known nationally. Appalachian State University was listed in the Top 10 in the Campus Conservation Nationals 2014 contest, an annual spring competition among colleges in the United States and Canada to save energy and water.  It is also according to the 2014 edition of The Princeton Review's Guide to 332 Green Colleges "among the most environmentally responsible colleges".
