Call for UNH Authors: Speakers Bureau Opportunities

August 8, 2007

“Searching for Joy”, a work of fiction by TSAS professor Tim Barretto is the first book to be listed in the new Speakers Bureau category “Books by UNH Authors.”

The Speakers Bureau is currently seeking UNH faculty and staff authors interested in listing their published works and speaking to New Hampshire audiences about them. The Speakers Bureau program connects faculty and staff experts with speaking engagements around the state in contribution to the outreach mission of the University.

“By enlisting UNH authors as Speakers Bureau members we are expanding the University’s ability to serve as a resource to the state, encouraging the people in our communities to read and creating an opportunity for an interactive experience with a UNH Speakers Bureau expert,” said program coordinator Nora Molloy.

These published works, when listed on the Speakers Bureau website, will make up a new topic category titled “Books by UNH Authors.” Additionally, all books will be cross-referenced under any other applicable category for increased exposure. Submitted works can be fiction, non-fiction, reference or any other genre, and there are no restrictions based on publication date. The Speakers Bureau and “Books by UNH Authors” category will be promoted to libraries and other appropriate groups across the state later this fall.

Interested authors should submit their information to speakers.bureau@unh.edu. Submissions should include authors name, brief biography of author, book title, genre (fiction, non fiction, reference, textbook etc.), publisher and publication date, ISBN number, book content/story description or summation and information on how or where the book can be purchased.

For more information, Molloy at 2-4401 or n.molloy@unh.edu.
