Jeff Delbel

Award winning author Jeff Delbel will be reading from his Novels and discussing his work on September 12 at the Carriage House Theater at 6:00 PM.

Jeff first studied writing at the University of Maimi, Fla. and continued at the Syracuse University S. I. Newhouse School where he earned a PhD. In his early career as a professor of Telecommunications at Cayuga Community College, Jeff wrote and produced scores of scripts and received national recognition from PBS.

After serving for ten years as a Cayuga dean, Jeff returned to the classroom and added Philosophy to his competency list. From that time, he has focused on blending clear, readable, and engaging writing with the deep questions of the great philosophers.

In 2016, Jeff published the first book in the Jimmy Eagleson series, The Flight of Jimmy Eagleson, followed in 2017 by the second series story, Salvatore. Each novel earned the prestigious CNY People’s Choice Award presented by the Greater Syracuse Area YMCA’s Downtown writers’ center and Syracuse University’s NPR affiliate WEAR. Kate’s Gift, the third of the series books is slated for publication in 2020.

Jeff is now Professor Emeritus of Communications and Philosophy from Cayuga. He lives in the Finger Lakes region where he continues to teach and write.
