Book Fest Submissions | Did you publish a book in 2019 or ’20?

Dedman College Interdisciplinary Institute (DCII) Book Fest

Dear Faculty and Staff:

The DCII’s annual Book Fest, sponsored by the Godbey Lecture Series, is a unique celebration of all books published by SMU faculty and staff the year prior. Unfortunately, the Book Fest was cancelled during the unprecedented spring 2020 semester and the difficult decision was made to not host an in-person event this spring. We would like to take the opportunity though to celebrate your books in a new, socially distanced format.

The DCII will purchase copies of books published in 2019 and 2020 by faculty and staff and display them in the library of our new space in Gerald J. Ford Hall for Research and Innovation. All of campus will then be invited to visit and browse the library at their socially distanced leisure. We hope that the invitation will increase exposure of your books, celebrate them, and inspire others on campus.

If you are the author of a book published in 2019 or 2020, please submit your information here.

Book submissions are due by Thursday, February 18.

We look forward to hearing more about your books!
