Books and Celebrations

Book Celebrations

AFEA’s Book Celebrations are an opportunity for AFEA members to share their newly published books with AFEA members and others. Books are submitted for the Book Celebration once each year. An email is sent to AFEA members requesting submissions for newly published books. When a book is submitted, the author/editor will be asked to submit an abstract/brief description of the book to be posted on the Book Spotlight on the AFEA website. The author/editor of the book will also be asked to provide a short video clip highlighting the key issues in the book. This video clip will be posted on the AFEA YouTube channel

You must be a current member of AFEA to submit a book for the Book Celebration.
Please join or renew prior to submitting your book.
