Homecoming-logo-13-final-300x206GEORGETOWN, KY – A highlight of Georgetown College’s Homecoming weekend for the past several years has been the Book Signing and Reconnection Brunch. This year is no exception.

It will be held Saturday, October 12, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Cralle Student Center.

Alumni, current and retired professors and others look forward to signing their published works and visiting with returning graduates and their families in the Jones-Hall-Nelson Suite (formerly the Hall of Fame Room). That’s also where brunch will be available.
