History Professor Named Board of Directors President for Bookmarks

01.14.2014

HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 14, 2014 – Dr. Philip Mulder, professor of history, has been elected to a second term as board president of the Bookmarks nonprofit organization. Bookmarks promotes the literary arts by bringing influential authors to the Triad, its local schools and the region’s most significant annual Festival of Books and Authors.

Bookmarks has also benefited the HPU community by bringing to campus internationally famous columnist and CNN political commentator Carlos Alberto Montaner and Kevin Maurer, author of “No Easy Day: The First Hand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama Bin Laden.” The Authors in Schools program has also shared writers with Montlieu Academy of Technology, including award-winning children’s book illustrator and author Bonnie Christensen, whose publications for young readers include biographies of Galileo, Django Reinhardt, Dred Scott, Ida B. Wells and Woody Guthrie.

Several HPU faculty and staff volunteer year-round for Bookmarks, its Festival and special author talks from best-sellers like Lee Smith, Isabel Allende and Lemony Snicket.

“There is a magical, inspirational interaction between authors and readers at Bookmarks events,” says Mulder, “a sharing of books and stories, of lives and learning.”
