UIS Author Festival

Annual celebration of UIS authors.

Author Festival 2022 (Virtual)

The Annual UIS Author Festival allows us to share some of the scholarship and research at the University of Illinois Springfield with our community. Gathering together to hear authors, having the ability to ask questions, and interacting with each other was an important format the first two years of the Festival. Moving to a virtual platform again this year removes the friendly conversations and prevents us from sampling the delightful offerings from UIS Catering, but we can still gather, question, and learn from UIS authors, and this opens the experience to those who cannot physically attend. Co-sponsored by the Friends of Brookens Library and by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, this event is a wonderful opportunity made possible by the wealth of talent within the UIS community.

Faculty publications are available to borrow and can be searched in the Library Catalog.
