Taos writer John Nichols lectures on Wednesday, November 7

The 3rd annual Rudolfo and Patricia Anaya Lecture on the Literature of the Southwest features Taos writer John Nichols on Wednesday, November 7

"From Anaya to Zollinger: A Personal Journey through Southwest Literature"

John Nichols

Wednesday, November 7
7:00 p.m.
George Pearl Hall Auditorium

The lecture is free and open to the public, with a reception to follow. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

A resident of New Mexico since 1969, John Nichols is the distinguished author of 12 novels and 8 works of non-fiction. His most recent novel, On Top of Spoon Mountain, was published by the University of New Mexico Press in October of this year. Nichols has written the “New Mexico Trilogy” of novels—his classic The Milagro Beanfield War, The Magic Journey, and The Nirvana Blues—as well as a non-fiction trilogy about the Southwest—If Mountains Die, The Last Beautiful Days of Autumn, and On the Mesa.

“Much of my work has dealt with struggles for human justice, land and water rights issues, the clash between Chicano, Native American, and Anglo cultures,” Nichols writes. “My stuff is often polemical, usually comic. Laugh and the world laughs with us; weep and we weep alone.”

Made possible through a generous gift from New Mexico writer Rudolfo Anaya, the annual Anaya Lecture brings together students, faculty, and community members to address the rich traditions and new directions of Southwest literature. Event co-sponsors: UNM English Department, Division of Student Affairs, Institute for American Indian Research (IFAIR), University Libraries, Alfonso Ortiz Center for Intercultural Studies, Honors College, Center for the Southwest, Feminist Research Institute, Department of History.
