2021 FSCJ Author Series
The annual FSCJ Author Series engages students in a learning community around a published memoir and social issues that promote academic discourse in higher education and create permanent and positive impact within the College and community. FSCJ students attend events throughout the academic year relevant to the memoir. The author visits in March, speaking at free College events that are open to the public.
This year, in light of the pandemic, most of the events will be virtual through WebEx. Please visit the events page for updates and details.
