CCSU Central Authors Series


Each fall, four CCSU faculty and alumni authors give talks about their books as part of the Central Authors series at CCSU. The talks air on over twenty cable outlets in Connecticut, and episodes are also available online.

Central Authors is a program dedicated to highlighting the broad range of books produced by members of the CCSU family in their own words.

Fore more information, see the Central Authors’ website:
