Author Appearances

Since opening in our downtown Hamilton location in August of 2002, the Colgate Bookstore has hosted more than 250 author appearances. Andy Rooney, Jesse Jackson, Bob and Lee Woodruff, Chris Hedges, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are among the renowned public figures who have chosen our store for their book signings, discussions, and special events. We also regularly host distinguished faculty authors, writers from across the country, and those who make their homes here in central New York. If you would like more information, or would like to suggest an author that you would like to see appear, please email Kelly Thomas.
