Authors’ reception outfit

As some of you may know I published a book entitled Lectures in Meteorology together with my colleague Gerhard Kramm last summer. At the end of this school year, the University of Alaska Fairbanks had an authors’ reception to recognize scholar work.

The program of the reception

The reception was at the university library. There was a short program with welcome address, brief summaries of each book including laudatio and a buffet. Among the guests were the authors, their significant others, Deans, Vice Chancellors and a Vice President.

Business casual dress code

The dress code was business casual as the reception took place immediately after work. The OOTD in this post shows what I wore to attend the reception.
