Spirit Of Place

Spirit of Place is the work of editor Gaymon Bennett, NNU Professor of English, Emeritus and Paul Kinsman, NNU Professor of Art. This remarkable book is a visual and anecdotal snapshot of the unique people and events from across the years; all of which have come to make NNU what it is. The work is organized around eight themes: Community, Sacrifice, Life, Learning, Love, Laughter, People, Transformation. It’s a joy to page through, remember and give thanks.
