This afternoon, Ken Davis will be signing copies of his new book University of Connecticut Basketball Vault, The history of the Huskies, published by Whitman Publishing. Davis will sign copies of the book at the UConn Co-op on Friday, Oct. 15, beginning at 4:30 p.m., just before the 2010-11 basketball season kicks off with First Night activities at Harry A. Gampel Pavilion.
The book is part of The College Vault series and features a “time capsule” approach, including historic images and reproductions of ephemera that are part of the team’s history, such as game programs, statistics sheets, and other items that enhance the comprehensive narrative about each team. A considerable portion of the research was conducted in the University Archives and items from the collection have been reproduced as part of the publication. More information about the author and the book in the UConn Today article by Kenneth Best (10/15/2010). Details about the book signing are available on the Co-op website. A copy of the publication has been added to the collection in the University Archives.
