This week the University of Nebraska Press will be at the annual Association of Writers and Writing Programs Conference (AWP), and we’re exited to host several authors in our booths to celebrate and sign their newest creative works. Visit us in booths 1022, 1023, and 1024 and follow us on Twitter at @UnivNebPress for updates during the conference.
With so many authors, there’s something for nearly every reader and interest. Whether you love talking about writing, are struggling with addiction, are interested in fishing, or really just don’t want to die, stop by and meet your new favorite book.
If you aren’t able to attend the conference this week, please visit our virtual book exhibit for the same great conference discounts!
