The NDSU Press is set to unveil six new books during the second annual “NDSU Press Party,” scheduled for Thursday, March 2, at 7 p.m. at the Harry D. McGovern Alumni Center.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature music by Cat Sank Trio and a cash bar.
“We’re pleased to celebrate a varied collection of titles for our annual book launch,” said Suzzanne Kelley, NDSU Press editor-in-chief. “We have titles of international, national and regional interest with everything from the memoir of a Fargo-Moorhead derby girl to a translated-from-the-Bosnian-novel love affair; from a history of the Challey School of Music to an ethnic atlas of rural North Dakota. The works are both scholarly and literary, of interest to the academic and the poet.”
Highlighted books and authors include:
• “Derby Girl: A Memoir,” by Sammi Jones
• “Prairie Mosaic: An Ethnic Atlas of Rural North Dakota, 2nd Edition,” by William C. Sherman, with Introduction by Thomas D. Isern
• “Music at NDSU,” by Robert Groves
• “Land of Sunlit Ice,” poetry by Larry Woiwode
• “Devotions,” poetry by Timothy Murphy
• “This Could Have Been a Simple Story,” by Ajla Terzić, translated from the Bosnian by John K. Cox
“We are making great strides toward becoming the press of choice for scholars of the plains and prairies,” Kelley said. “I urge the public and the campus community to come meet our six newest authors and join in this sweet celebration.”
The mission of NDSU Press is to stimulate and coordinate interdisciplinary regional scholarship throughout the Red River Valley, North Dakota, the North American plains and similar regions around the world. NDSU Press is part of the Institute for Regional Studies.
