Celebrate Authors

Our annual Celebrate Authors event publicly celebrates the talent, hard work, and achievements of southern New Mexican authors. Booktalks, displays, and book signings by authors promote the diversity and excellence of literary talent throughout our community.


The Friends of the Thomas Branigan Memorial Library invite authors to participate in the Fifth Annual CELEBRATE AUTHORS event, to be held on Sunday, September 16, 2018, from 2-4 pm in the Roadrunner Room of the Thomas Branigan Memorial Library.

Authors must be residents of the southern New Mexico region, and books must have been published in 2013 or later (no older than five years.)  Books can be of all genres:  fiction, non-fiction, poetry, a collection of short stories or children’s literature.  Information about the author and the book must be submitted on the application form which you can download and complete here.
