North Dakota State University Press will launch six of its most recent book releases during the eighth annual NDSU Press Party, scheduled for Thursday, March 2, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Harry D. McGovern Alumni Center, 1241 University Drive N.

The event is free and open to the public. Authors will each read briefly from their books, and they will be available for autographs and further discussion.

“I’m glad to close the book, so to speak, on another great season of publishing with this celebratory community event. Six of our Certificate in Publishing students will assist with the programs, learning how public readings are conducted and taking part in publicity and marketing. The author presentations will be bookended by live music from Cat Sank Trio, coming out of retirement for our extravaganza. We invite all readers and writers of the plains and prairies to join us in this celebration. And, there will be cake,” said Suzzanne Kelley, NDSU Press editor-in-chief and director of NDSU’s Certificate in Publishing program.

“This year, we’re adding a morning-after interview event at the Plains Art Museum with “National Native News” anchor and NDSU Press author Antonia Gonzales at 7 a.m. on March 3. We’ll provide coffee and light refreshments, and the event is free and open to the public.”

The six celebrated books include:

• “Dust Yourself Off: The Gravel Road to a Good Life,” by Tricia Velure and Tom Sandhei

• “Field Notes, A Little Book about North Dakota, Vol. 1,” by Margaret Rogal, illustrated by Mike Jacobs

• “Rethinking Rural: Reflections on Today, Insights for the Future, Vol. 1,” ed. Matt Ehlman, contributing author Antonia Gonzales

• “Surrender Dorothy,” Poetry of the Plains and Prairies Award, Vol. 7, by Brett Salsbury

• “Radium,” debut novel by John Enger

• “The Clean Daughter: A Cross-Continental Memoir,” by Jill Kandel

The NDSU Press, established in 1950, operates under the North Dakota Institute for Regional Studies, located at NDSU. The press’s dual mission is to stimulate and coordinate interdisciplinary scholarship, poetry, and literary works throughout the Red River Valley, North Dakota, the plains of North America and comparable regions of other continents, and to provide experiential learning for the next generation of publishers.

NDSU Press publishes trade books, textbooks, reference books, anthologies, reprints, papers, proceedings, monographs, poetry and fiction.
