We are currently at capacity for the 2023-2024 academic year and are no longer accepting submissions for Book Talks.
Gutman Library Book Talks celebrate important scholarship in the field of education and provide a venue for critical discussion and engagement with current issues in the field of education research, practice, and policy. Book Talks are free and open to the public. Each event is recorded (with few exceptions) and includes real-time captions
Watch past Book Talks dating back to spring 2020.
SCHEDULING: Gutman Library book talks are scheduled on weekdays. Whether lunchtime or evening time, our events are open to the public. Book talks typically run for 1-1.5 hours, depending on your preference. In order to maximize attendance and engagement, we will be scheduling only up to four book talks per term and only during the specific time frames that we have found work best for attracting the most attendees.
FORMAT: Book Talks typically take the form of an author giving a presentation about the book, the research process, the findings, etc., followed by a Q&A. However, the format of the event is up to the author. If you would prefer a panel presentation, whether one or more other colleagues, an interactive learning activity, formal reading, etc. we are happy to accommodate. We will coordinate with a local bookstore to sell copies of the book before/after the event; it would be up to you if you would like to do a formal book signing. For virtual events, we will coordinate with your publisher.
CATERING: Gutman Library will work with each author (or their publisher) and any other related campus offices to determine if catering is possible.
TRAVEL: Unfortunately, we are not able to cover or reimburse travel or lodging expenses for authors.
