UAP 40th Anniversary

This is an auspicious year for The University of Alberta Press. The UAP has been publishing award-winning books for scholars and trade readers for forty years now. This is also the second year running that the UAP has decided to feature authors and their works of creative non-fiction, specifically of memoir and essay.

As the winter semester winds down here on campus, many of you may be anticipating some necessary down time from academia; others may be preparing for the next phase of their academic career, whether it be as student or teacher. Now is a time for pause and serene reflection; now is a time to relax with colleagues and friends and help the University of Alberta Press celebrate three of its outstanding authors.

Gloria Mehlmann, Roger Epp, and Daniel Coleman all share lifelong affiliations with learning and educational institutions. Their respective meditations on such fundamental themes as childhood education and teaching; our inalienable ties with region, its people, and its political economy; and the incomparable activity—so simple, yet so affirmative—of quietly reading a book, will undoubtedly stir our appreciation of teachers and learners and inspire us to continue to embrace our own educational challenges.
