Faculty, staff book signing Feb. 17

Several faculty and staff at Henderson State University are authors who have published books about their interests and expertise. From the psychology of Batman and the history of comics, to American-Soviet diplomacy and Shakespeare’s skepticism, the topics are wide-ranging.

These professors and staff members will participate in a book signing in Huie Library’s Greene Room Feb. 17 from 3-4:30 p.m. Copies of the authors’ books will be available for purchase.
