Meet the Authors

Close up of bookshelf with many muti-colored books packed in


The Meet the Authors lectures series, offered by the Honors College, has a 30 year history of bringing local, New Mexico writers to the UNM campus. New Mexico is an amazing place for artistic people and it always has been. It’s attracted artists and writers from the very beginning. In the lecture series the relationship writers have with New Mexico is explored and gives students and the general public a chance to learn more about where they are. Both fiction and non-fiction, a lot of which is set in New Mexico or applies to New Mexico, will be featured.

The Meet the Authors Series will be hosted in the Honors College Forum (Basement level of the SHAC, Building 73 on the UNM Central Campus Map) Wednesdays throughout the fall 2018 semester from 3pm-5pm. The event is free and all are welcome to attend.
