Center for the Book lunchtime speaker series

The Alabama Center for the Book, under the aegis of The University Libraries at The University of Alabama, and The University of Alabama Press are pleased to invite UA students, faculty, and staff, as well as the public to a lunchtime speaker series spotlighting recent works by Alabama writers.

The partnership's free hour-long sessions will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn from and engage directly with authors whose new books illuminate facets of The University, our state, region, and world. The first speaker in the series is The University's Robert Oliver Mellown, associate professor of art history emeritus, who'll present the fascinating history and hidden by-ways of Alabama's glorious campus in his magisterial new guide The University of Alabama: A Guide to the Campus and Its Architecture.

From lifelong Tuscaloosa residents to incoming freshmen, all will enjoy this unique opportunity to learn about our storied environs. Room #205 in the east wing of Gorgas Library will be set with tables, and attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch or purchase lunch in the library's grab-and-go café.
