Professors Bill Slomanson and Marjorie Cohn recently were honored by the San Diego Public Library’s 46th Annual Local Authors Exhibit, along with 275 San Diego authors, who published books during 2011.
“I was excited to be recognized,” said Slomanson. “In 2011, I actually published three books all of them are Cases and Materials on California Civil Procedure, 4th edition and California Civil Practice: Civil Pretrial, 1st edition and California Civil Procedure in a Nutshell, 4th edition.
"It was my privilege to be honored as one of San Diego's local authors for my book, The United States and Torture: Interrogation, Incarceration, and Abuse, said Professor Cohn.
According to the SD Public Library’s website, the Annual Local Author Exhibit highlights the intellectual and creative accomplishments of writers in the San Diego region. In its 46th year, the aim of the Exhibit was to bring exposure to local talent and nurture the pursuit of the writing arts in San Diego.
The Authors Exhibit was on display at the Central Library located in Downtown San Diego throughout the month of February. Submitted publications can now be found on the library’s website and are currently exhibited in an online gallery, along with author photos, brief biographies, and brief publishing information.
“The online exhibit is a wonderful addition to our already successful Local Author program,” said Deborah Barrow, director of the San Diego Public Library. “We are happy to provide this extra exposure to help spread the word about our diverse community of local authors and support their success.”
Professor Slomanson says he has “published a book almost every year, for some years---with 18 now under my belt and just starting the 19th.” This is his ninth time Professor Slomanson has been included in San Diego Public Library’s Local Authors Exhibit.
Other books by Professor Cohn include, Cowboy Republic: Six Ways the Bush Gang Has Defied the Law and co-author of Cameras in the Courtroom: Television and the Pursuit of Justice and Rules of Disengagement: The Politics and Honor of Military Dissent. Her latest book, The United States and Torture: Interrogation, Incarceration and Abuse, was published in January 2011 by NYU Press, and the paperback version was published in the spring of 2012.
