The Stamp of One Defect: The Mystery of Memory in Shakespeare’s Hamlet
A lecture by Dr. Felipe de Ortego y Gasca
Thursday, May 4, 2017, 6:30-7:30pm
Western New Mexico University Light Hall Theater

The lecture, drawn from Dr. Ortego’s work The Stamp of One Defect: A Study of Hamlet (Texas Western, 1966)—considered by Shakespearean Professor Haldeen Braddy as the most provocative work in a century of Hamlet studies—unravels the impediment of lost memory from clues explicit in the text of Hamlet. This event is sponsored by the Southwest Festival of the Written Word, Western Institute for Lifelong Learning (WILL), WNMU College of Arts and Sciences, and Office of Cultural Affairs. For more information about this event, call the Office of Cultural Affairs at 575-538-6469.

    I was not able to locate information pertaining to opportunities for authors to display and sell their books. Did I miss it?

      Hi JR,
      The next large Festival, which will include a marketplace for book sales, will be September 29 – October 1, 2017. The intervening events are smaller and not as well suited for exhibitors/vendors. More information about how to reserve a table will be posted when we get closer to the big event. Thank you so much for your interest!
      -Lillian Galloway, web coordinator and public library liaison
