Mohawk College celebrates authors in its midst on National Authors Day

On Author’s Day, November 1, Mohawk College is recognizing the authors in its midst.

Mohawk College hosted a reception on November 1 to honour more than 40 Mohawk College authors, faculty and staff members, in conjunction with National Authors Day. The celebrated writers have written everything from course textbooks to adult fiction to children’s stories.

“We are proud to have these authors associated with the college,” said President and CEO Ron McKerlie. “Writing a book is no easy task. It requires perseverance, a deep well of creativity, and countless hours spent refining thoughts and ideas. The work of these writers is a testament to their individual capabilities and it also reflects the caliber and excellence of Mohawk College. With each book published, they showcase the depth of knowledge, expertise, and creativity that thrives here.”

Among the authors recognized on National Authors Day were: Dr. Lisa Funnell (Resisting James Bond: Power and Privilege in the Daniel Craig Era, 2023); Leif Peng (The Art of the REAL Tom Sawyer, 2023); Dr. Anne-Marie DePape (Charlotte’s Shadow, 2022); John Corr (Eight Times Up, 2019); Dr. Sharon Kamassah (Yielding: Life Unraveled, 2021); Stephen Metelsky (Undercover: Stories from the Underworld of Law Enforcement, 2021); and many more.
