Literary Lubbock



Since 2003, Literary Lubbock has been a signature literary event for book lovers, authors, and readers all across the South Plains. Literary Lubbock is Texas Tech University Press’s annual fundraiser, with event proceeds benefiting the Grover E. Murray Studies in the American Southwest, a book series named in honor of Texas Tech’s past president.

The Literary Lubbock program features recent and notable books published by the Texas Tech University Press. All books will be available for sale and signing.

Literary Lubbock is a must-attend event for all those interested in and supportive of literary culture.

Thank you for a successful Literary Lubbock 2021!
