NDSU Press is set to host its fourth annual official book launching during the NDSU Press Party, scheduled for Thursday, March 7, at 7 p.m. in the Harry D. McGovern Alumni Center, 1241 University Drive N.
NDSU Press authors will read from their newest books, and live music will be provided by Cat Sank Trio. The event also will feature a cash bar and refreshments. It is free and open to the public.
The following books will be highlighted:
• “Apple in the Middle,” by Dawn Quigley

• “Hunter’s Log: Volumes II & III,” by Timothy Murphy
• “Still,” by Rebecca E. Bender and Kenneth M. Bender
• “Operation Snowbound: Life behind the Blizzards of 1949,” by David W. Mills.
“We can hardly believe we are in our fourth year of what has become our signature event. Authors and the official launch of their great books, live music and delicious munchies; our annual NDSU Press Party has something for everyone, said Suzzanne Kelley, NDSU Press editor in chief. “We are especially pleased to serve the land-grant university mission to enlarge the body of knowledge—in our case, via literary and scholarly publications—shared through conversation with the public. Our event exhibits the humanities at their finest.”
