Continuing Studies is proud to sponsor the sixth annual Company of Authors, which has quickly become a Stanford tradition—a Spring "book salon" featuring the rich variety of writers associated with the University. In the comfortable and collegial setting of the Stanford Humanities Center, as many as fifteen writers in all genres from fiction to history, theoretical physics to memoir, will read excerpts from their latest books.

This year's readings will include, among others, Gordon Chang on Asian-American art, Paul Goldstein and his legal thrillers, Robert Harrison on gardens, Joshua Landy and Michael Saler on enchantment, Richard Lyman on Stanford in turmoil from 1966 to 1972, Jennifer Summit on medieval books and their relevance to the current state of libraries, and the consummate storyteller, Tobias Wolff.

Just added to the program: Denise Gigante, Bliss Carnochan, Hilton Obenzinger, Edith Gelles, Abraham Verghese, Donald Kennedy and Darryl Wheye, Paul Brest and Hal Harvey, John Hatcher, and Katheryn Miller.

The program is hosted by Peter Stansky, Field Professor of History, Emeritus, and is co-sponsored by the Stanford Humanities Center, the Stanford Bookstore, and the Palo Alto Weekly.

Drop in, or indulge yourself by spending the entire afternoon in the company of these bright, entertaining, and stimulating writers. The Stanford Bookstore will sell books at a 10% discount, and authors will sign copies. Refreshments will be provided.
