Book Recommendations

The Office of the Provost and the Research Office asked faculty to recommend great books, both all-time favorites and new discoveries, including West Virginia authors who are natives or current residents. Recommendations poured in from across the University, with more than 140 books in total.

Ten books—five by West Virginia authors—are featured on a commemorative bookmark that will be distributed at events during the yearlong celebration of the 50th anniversary of the creation of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Those books and more are listed here.

Check them out. We believe that you’ll add at least one of these to your own “must-read” list.
