Cal Poly Pomona Authors Honored With Golden Leaves Awards
Dolores Cullen talks about her book, “Who's Afraid of Middle English? A Book of Lystes,” during the 17th annual Golden Leaves Awards.

Judith Sheine shares a laugh with Harold Schleifer, University Library dean, as she receives her award for her book “R.M. Schindler.”

The University Library, in conjunction with Research & Sponsored Programs, honored 22 Cal Poly Pomona authors at the annual Golden Leaves Awards luncheon on April 4 in the library?s Special Collections Room.

The Golden Leaves Awards are presented to members of the Cal Poly Pomona campus community?including faculty, staff, alumni, students and retirees?who have authored or edited a published book during the preceding year. The event is usually scheduled during National Library Week in April.
University Library dean Harold B. Schleifer commended the authors for their continued scholarship.

?Since the Golden Leaves Awards began in 1996, I?ve been privileged to recognize nearly 300 authorships,? he said. ?This year, 22 authors produced 26 books and we would like to honor each of you.?

Tomas Morales, vice president for Academic Affairs/Student Affairs, thanked Schleifer and other library staff for organizing the event.

?This is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the literary accomplishments of our faculty, staff, emeriti, alumni and students,? said Morales. ?Last year I attended my first Golden Leaves Award program and enjoyed listening to the authors describe their books and share their experiences with the writing and publishing process.?

President Suzuki, who was unable to attend the event, wrote a congratulatory message that was read out loud to the authors at the luncheon.

?I recognize the enormous efforts involved in authoring a book and am very supportive of these scholarly activities,? he wrote. ?Your work enhances the prestige and reputation of Cal Poly Pomona, and I commend each of you on these significant achievements.?

A book exhibit featuring campus authors will be on display in the library through the end of April. A Web-based representation of current and past authors is accessible at
