    I’m a CCSU graduate (master’s degree) and my debut young adult novel is being published by Bloomsbury USA Children’s Books on February 10, 2015. I first got the idea for the novel while enrolled in an Emily Dickinson course with Dr. Melissa Mentzer at CCSU. In fact, she and Dr. Sugg, also from the English Department, are mentioned in the acknowledgements. I thought this might be a good story for your Arts section since my classes at CCSU directly inspired the novel. If you’d like more information about me or the book, please email me at Thanks!

    Hey, Let Matt Knox know I thought the article on the Pub in the 10/8 edition of The Recorder was great! It really gave me (and I hope current students) a feel for what it was like to visit The Pub back in the day. Nice job! –Otis Mamed, Student Center Director.
