--Extended through July 25--

BOSTON - The Adams Gallery’s current exhibit of recent works by Suffolk University faculty and alumni authors has been extended through July 25.

Suffolk’s Bookshelf: A Showcase of University Authors highlights a wide range of material, reflecting the varied interests of professors and graduates of Suffolk University’s three schools: the College of Arts and Sciences, the Sawyer School of Management and Suffolk University Law School. Among the books are:

  • A League of My Own the personal story of Pat Brown, who played in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League. Brown holds three degrees from Suffolk and was a librarian for the University and Law School libraries.
  • Body of Secrets: Anatomy of the Ultrasecret NSA, From the Cold War to the Dawn of a New Century, a national bestseller and winner of the 2002 Investigative Reporters and Editors Freedom of Information Award, by James Bamford, a graduate of Suffolk Law School.
  • Nat Turner: A Slave Rebellion in History and Memory, by Kenneth S. Greenberg, Distinguished Professor of History and Associate Dean of Suffolk’s College of Arts and Sciences, gathers twelve distinguished scholars to offer provocative new insights into the man, his rebellion, his time, and his place in history.

Some of these books will be read for pleasure, others used mostly for instruction or reference. But individually and as a collection these volumes demonstrate the passion of Suffolk’s scholars for their fields of interest. The exhibit includes copies of each book, a synopsis, and a brief biography and photo of each author. Some authors also have offered reflections on Suffolk University.

Adams Gallery, open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, is located at Suffolk Law School’s David J. Sargent Hall, 120 Tremont Street, Boston. For more information, please call 617-573-8508.
