NMSU Library will feature a Max Evans exhibition showcasing his extensive portfolio of short stories, novels, novellas, and non-fiction beginning on December 10th. As an NMSU honorary doctorate recipient, the University Library will feature an exhibition of his work, which is housed in the Special Collections Department at Branson Library.
Many of Evans’ works feature characters that embody a love affair with New Mexico and the West. Evans’ body of work spans decades, his first novel “The Rounders” was published in 1960, and his non-fiction work “For Love of a Horse” was published in 2007.
Evans’ works have made their way to the silver screen; “The Rounders” and “Hi Lo Country” were both adapted in feature length films.
Evans’ work has contributed to the preservation and advancement of New Mexico’s agricultural and creative assets, not only through his work but through his contributions in creating the New Mexico Film Commission and the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Museum in Las Cruces.
The Max Evans Exhibition will be on display on the first floor of Branson Library from December 10th 2014 to February 1st, 2015.
