Friends in Deed
No one is more committed to preserving the stories of our region-from history and natural history to culture and the arts-than your university press. Please join our mission to make and keep these books available to Texas Tech University's widest constituency. Regional publishing is a core mission of every university press, but in such vast and sparsely populated regions as West Texas, that mission requires everyone's support.
You can help by simply joining the Friends of Texas Tech University Press at any of the following levels. Each level of membership has its benefits, but the most rewarding, at any level, is knowing that you are helping to preserve and disseminate invaluable books that might otherwise never enrich our lives or illuminate our region.
