University Press Week Blog Tour: Day 1

Welcome to the fifth annual University Press Week! Community is at the center of our mission: from the scholarly communities that contribute to the disciplines we publish to the regional culture and peoples of Texas, from the shared discourse of our campuses to a bookstore's community of readers.

For the annual blog tour, our fellow presses are featuring themed posts for each day of the week including, “The People in Our Neighborhood,” "IndieBound," "UP Staff Spotlight," "Throwback to the Future," and "Follow Friday."

Participate in the celebration by reading through the blog tour all this week, contribute to the conversation using the hashtags #ReadUP #UPshelfie #UPWeek on social media, and visit for more information.
