The 26th annual Faculty Author Reception at Pittsburg State University will showcase 11 authors whose works range from pieces on poetry, Turkish music, South American theatre, literary folklore, native wildflowers, and much more.
The reception is held each year to highlight faculty authors who have published books, chapters, journal articles, and other publications during the previous year. This year's reception will be held from 3-4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 5, at PSU's Axe Library. Books will be on display and the authors will be present to discuss their work.

He wrote multiple books, including titles on industrial education, the history of Kansas State Teachers College (PSU's former name), and the contribution of KSTC during the war effort in the 1940s.
