The Authors and Editors Recognition Series celebrates the literary and scholarly books published by university faculty by featuring selected authors and editors for readings and discussion.

The 2024 recognition series includes two nights of readings and receptions. Join the OSU Community each night.

OSULP's Chris Petersen is the author of the book Visions of Linus Pauling

Visions of Linus Pauling is "the culmination of 15 years of research," and " a magisterial piece of work, equivalent to previously unseen footage of a blockbuster movie."
