What to Wear to an Authors Reception?
Afternoon EoB receptions in a library have a business casual dress code. When the reception is within the framework of a banquet at a hotel, semi-formal to formal attire is expected. There also exist receptions by the publisher at restaurants on the side of a professional conference in the evening. Again your best bet is business casual or the dress code of the restaurant.
My 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 the 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 laudation 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 style as the reception took place immediately after work. The OOTD in this post shows what I wore to attend the reception.
