In celebration of their 90th anniversary, UNM Press hosts a Publishing Cake Walk on April 24 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Frank Waters Room in Zimmerman Library.

UNM Press’ Publishing Cake Walk is an opportunity for students and faculty to ask questions about the publishing industry, practice a book pitch and eat cake.

"The publishing cake walk is a chance for us to engage with the broader campus community and share our expertise," said Stephen Hull, director, UNM Press. "We’re looking forward to celebrating our 90th anniversary with everyone."

Established in 1929 by the UNM Board of Regents, UNM Press rose through the ranks placing within the top third of publishing houses in the Association of University Presses and is the fourth largest university press west of the Rocky Mountains in publishing new titles.

UNM Press participates in a public mission of The University of New Mexico through a publishing program that seeks to maintain the professional excellence of American university presses in general and to present the finest national and international scholarship in the academic areas they publish.

With more than 1,200 titles currently in print, UNM Press produces scholarly books in the arts, humanities and natural and social sciences—more specifically in the areas of fine arts, Western history, Latin American studies, literature, poetry, environmental studies, archaeology, anthropology and natural history.

As a nonprofit university press, UNM Press relies on outside financial support to meet its publishing objective including providing valuable resources to society, scholarship and academic community. Gifts to UNM Press are tax deductible as charitable contributions.
