Call for Books for Author Celebration
Are you an IAFFE member? Have you recently published a new book that should be
announced and applauded?
As has been customary, IAFFE will hold an
Author Celebration as part of the 2013 ASSA conference, being held in San Diego,
California, January 4-6, 2013. This year, I will be coordinating the ASSA Author
Celebration and Ranjula Bali Swain will be coordinating the Author Celebration
at the 2013 IAFFE conference in July.
If you are an IAFFE member and
have recently published a book, please send your information by December 14,
2012 by e-mail to email@example.com, with a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by
regular mail to Becky Byron, Rice University MS-9, 6100 Main Street, Houston, TX
77005 USA. Please include names of all the authors/editors, the publisher and
the price, as well as a short paragraph providing some information about the
contents. If you have a digital image of the cover please send that as well! If
you will be at the conference, you are welcome to bring a copy to show, and to
stand up to say a few (few!) words about it.
Usually we announce new
books twice, once at the mid-year IAFFE annual conference and once at the
January meetings in conjunction with the ASSA. If you already sent us
information about your book for the meetings in Barcelona, Spain in June, you do
not need to send the information again.
Thanks, and congratulations on
your new book!
