Check Out UNM President Garnett Stokes' new Summer Reading List

 

"The summer is always spent with my nose in a good book. This year, I plan on immersing myself in all things New Mexico by traveling this great state and reading about it as well. Thanks to your wonderful, diverse suggestions, my 2018 summer reading list includes the following:

Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya
• Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather
• A Brief History of New Mexico by Myra Ellen Jenkins and Albert H. Schroeder
• The Wind Leaves No Shadows by Ruth Laughlin
• Roadside New Mexico: A Guide to Historic Markers by David Pike
• Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko

I hope that these books provide me with some insight into the state's culture and geography. If you have not done so already, please consider reading these books along with me this summer. I want to mention that many of you suggested that I read anything written by Tony Hillerman. His books are not on my summer reading list because I believe I have read every piece of fiction he wrote!

Thanks so much to all of you who took the time to suggest books." - UNM President Garnett Stokes
