World Book Day is April 23! This is an excellent day to celebrate the merits of reading, continuing education, personal growth and imagination. The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) believes in the power of the written word and the responsibility of authors and journalists to convey the truth.
TFAS programs – including undergraduate journalism programs and professional journalism fellowships – provide the critical tools young journalists need to seek and promote the truth through diligent research and objective reporting. The products of past fellows and alumni provide all the evidence needed to show just how important and effective this education is.
TFAS alumni have published more than 200 books, with even more forthcoming. From politics to politeness, from business to beliefs, these works cover a broad range of topics. Yet they all have something in common – the author’s desire to uncover the truth.
This World Book Day, pick up a book written by a TFAS alumnus and start reading!
