Celebration of Books 2019 Poster

Established in 2014, the Celebration of Books is an annual presentation of books authored by UofT Mississauga faculty. This event gives the UTM community the opportunity to learn first-hand from the authors about their books and their research interests.

This year's celebration showcases 16 books published between 2017 and 2019. These books represent the authors' investment in and commitment to contributing new knowledge for the future.
