About the Penn Authors Forum
The Forum for Penn Authors is PIH’s oldest regular event. Established in 1996, the Forum for Penn Authors showcases recently published works by Penn faculty in an effort to prompt discussion and interaction between faculty and undergraduates. Forums are held 2-3 times each year in the Class of ’38 Lounge in Kings Court English College House over a catered meal. The featured author gives a short presentation of his or her work describing not only its content, but also the author's writing process. This is followed by a discussion with the audience and a book signing.
We are proud to have the following books by Penn Authors in our collection. They are available to any resident who would be interested in reading them.
