Phi Beta Kappa Authors
The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books.─ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (ΦBK, Bowdoin College, 1829)
For over two and a quarter centuries, Phi Beta Kappa has embraced the principles of freedom of inquiry, liberty of thought and expression, and the values inherent in the kind of education that provides a broad intellectual perspective.
These values assume, at the most fundamental level, an education supported by access to thousands of years of literature, history, philosophy, scientific observation, and human insight . . . in the form of books.
Phi Beta Kappa is pleased to recognize those among our membership who have recently published books of their own. If you are a published author, please let us know by writing to email@example.com.
