Central Authors

Central Authors

Central Authors is an annual series of 12 half-hour programs produced for Connecticut's cable television stations.  The format allows our faculty and staff the familiar comfort of the classroom lecture,  but in the Campus Bookstore.  It also provides them the luxury to wax over their work for the full 30 minutes without interruption.  Essentially the full span of scholarship defines the topical domain with presenters ranging from seasoned veteran authors to 'first-book' pens.
