Alumni Authors Exhibit

For the next two weeks, the LaGrange College Alumni Authors Exhibit will be on display on the main floor of the Frank & Laura Lewis Library, after which a portion of the exhibit will be moved to the library's lower floor and occupy more permanent exhibit space in Archives and Special Collections. The exhibit is a sample of LaGrange College's variety of alumni authors, and includes spotlights on 25 different alumni. The range of talents is ride, encompassing former students who became authors in their academic fields, novelists, journalists, poets, historians, and a cartoonist. From the earliest gradute featured (Eliza Frances Andrews Fanny, class of 1857) to the youngest graduate featured (Dr. Missy Cavallin, class of 2002), this exhibit highlights the accomplishments of some of LaGrange College's most outstanding alumni. Those represented in the exhibition also include well known author Terry Kay (class of 1959) whose books are also on display, and cartoonist Dean Young (class of 1960), whose panel of popular comic Blondie is also on display. We encourage you to attend this wonderful exhibit, organized by Jacque Hornsby and Patricia Barrett of Archives and Special Collections. (Photos by Rachel Evans)
