Name the new Queen's books column


The Queen's Gazette is asking readers to help us to name a new books section. The Gazette is offering a great prize: an autographed copy of Ana Siljak's acclaimed new book, Angel of Vengeance, which was featured in the April 14 issue of the Gazette. Submissions, both for the section and the naming contest, can be emailed to gazette@queensu.ca.

The new books section for this issue highlights publications written or edited by Queen's faculty and staff that would be of interest to the wider university and academic communities. In this premiere section, we've also highlighted a book about the life and work of Carl Heywood, a professor emeritus in the Department of Art. Many thanks go to Sue Bedell in the Faculty of Arts and Science for helping us to plan our first section.

Designed to capture areas of scholarly activity that don't always receive the same high public profile as medicine or science, this section is intended to reflect the full range of publishing that takes place on campus. This first edition focuses on recent publications from the Faculty of Arts and Science.

For our next section scheduled to appear in early fall, we ask that faculties and/or individual faculty and staff members send submissions that include the following:

• A brief description of the book, published within the last 12 months;

• A few lines explaining why you decided to write or edit the book;

• If available, a high-resolution jpg (200 dpi) or pdf file of the book cover to run with the description. Submissions should be about 250 words maximum, and may be edited to address space considerations.

A submission reminder will be published in the Gazette in advance of the next books section. The frequency of the books features will be determined by level of response. For more information, please email gazette@queensu.ca.
