Tom Hodson talks with Ohio University Press Director Gillian Berchowitz

Host Tom Hodson sits down with Gillian Berchowitz, Director of the Ohio University Press, to discuss the 50th anniversary of the press.

Started in 1964 by Vernon Alden, the Ohio University Press continues to stand out among other university presses in the country.

In the last ten to twenty years, university presses around the nation have been losing funding, and with that, the recognition of being elite press groups. Ohio University has withstood such turmoil.

Press Week, to celebrate the 50th anniversary, will run from February 16th to February 21st, beginning its celebrations at the Athens Historical Society.
