November Feature

This month, we celebrate the third annual University Press Week from November 9th through the 15th. This year's theme, "Great Minds Don't Think Alike," celebrates the varied contributions university presses from around the world make to stimulating ideas and conversations.

Don't miss the University Press Blog Tour, a virtual journey through the innovative contributions university presses make to scholarly communities, regional knowledge, and awareness of global issues. The University of Washington Press blog will be participating in this tour on Thursday, November 13.

For more about the blog tour and other activities scheduled for this year's University Press week, visit the Association of American University Presses website. While there, be sure to browse the online gallery of university press books, which will highlight the increasing importance of collaboration between presses, their home universities, and other local and national partners.
