The 2024 Ruidoso Books and Writing Festival features several published New Mexico authors who will give readings of their work, offer writing activities for attendees, and lead discussions on literature and the publishing industry. Attendees can learn about a variety of literary genres: fiction, creative nonfiction, memoir, poetry, and graphic novels. There will also be information on how to get involved with local literary groups and communities. The festival will be a great place to meet other creative southern New Mexicans interested in books and writing.

Among the lineup, the festival showcases a selection of New Mexico’s celebrated authors, each bringing their own style and expertise to the event. Included in the festival are Teresa Dovalpage, a Cuban writer and columnist whose works narrate Cuban and Latino cultures; Laura Vazquez Lopez and her insights on the transformative power of creative writing; freelance cartoonist and illustrator Rick Geary, who adds a distinct visual storytelling element to the program; Joshua Wheeler, known for his thought-provoking essays and debut novel Acid West; Heather Franklin’s contributions in poetry and memoirs; and Allison Layfield, recognized for her emerging voice in poetry. The event promises to be a celebration of the written word, serving as a gateway to literary exploration and storytelling.

The festival is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.
