Do you believe there are books that deserve to be read, authors whose voices call to be heard? For the University of Nebraska Press, an award-winning nonprofit publisher for more than 76 years, the answer to that question is an unequivocal “Yes!”

UNP publishes, promotes, and disseminates works of intellectual and cultural significance and enduring value. Among UNP authors are some of Nebraska’s most celebrated writers, including Willa Cather, Loren Eiseley, and Ted Kooser. UNP publishes scholarly and creative works in a diverse and innovative range of topics, from Western and American Indian history to early modern studies, from contemporary prose and poetry to ground-breaking scholarship and literary works in translation, from sports history to the history of the Holocaust.

And UNP does it well. Some of the prestigious awards received recently by UNP books include Bancroft Prizes from Columbia University, the Binghamton University John Gardner Fiction Book Award, the National Jewish Book Award in Visual Arts, and Society for American Baseball Research’s Seymour Medals.

To help make this happen, The Friends of the University of Nebraska Press provides essential financial support to UNP. Your donation can help the Friends continue this mission, and gifts of any size are appreciated. Donate $75 or more and receive the benefits of Friends membership, including an annual presentation volume and discounts on UNP books.
