Pets Storytime

6:30pm on Thursday, February 26th

New Mexico Authors
Tom Corbett and Lee Marmon
on Thursday, February 26th at 6:30pm share
Laguna Pueblo: A Photographic History

The distinguished American Indian photographer Lee Marmon has documented over sixty years of Laguna history: its people, customs, and cultural changes. Here more than one hundred of Marmon’s photos showcase his talents while highlighting the cohesive, adaptive, and independent character of the Laguna people.

Along with Marmon’s own oral history of the tribe and his family photos dating back to 1872, Tom Corbett presents archival images and historical research, making this the most complete published history of any southwestern pueblo. Marmon and Corbett also interviewed noted tribal elders and oral historians regarding customs, religious practices, and events of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The resulting narrative provides a fascinating story of survival through severe natural and man-made adversities, including droughts, plagues, marauding tribes, and cultural invasion. Through it all, Laguna has preserved its culture and retained sovereign powers over the pueblo and its territory. .


Lee Marmon lives in his hometown, Laguna Pueblo, New Mexico. His interest in photography grew while he was serving in the U.S. Army during World War II. After the war, while working at his father’s trading post, he photographed the main work in this collection, portraits of Laguna elders, which is now with the University of New Mexico.

Tom Corbett is a physician who lived and practiced at Laguna Pueblo in the 1960s. He conceived the idea for this historical book while living among and caring for the Lagunas. It has been a work in progress since that time. He and Lee Marmon have been friends for fifty years.


This event is free & open to the public.

More Pet Friends

Join us for
Travelin' Jack and Jill Lane
on Sunday, March 8th at 2:30pm


Terrie Q Sayre, local radio personality and well known animal lover had completed a sequel to her previous book Pet Friends before she passed away in January of this year after a short illness. Page 1 Books is honored to host an event to promote the new book and help raise money for local animal welfare agencies. More Pet Friends was a project of love by Terrie Q Sayre and she had finished proofing, writing her essays and advising on the book before her untimely death. The profits from the sales of the book go to Albuquerque Animal Welfare, Save Lucky Paws, Sunflower Animal Sanctuary, & Kennel Kompadres in Terrie’s name.

Pictures of Governor Martinez & her family & her dogs, Mayor Berry & Skip, the Sandia Pueblo buffalos, many media people like Tessa Mentus of KOB TV, Adam Baca & Don James of Albuquerque The Magazine, and all sorts of people from KKOB appear throughout the book. There are also authors like the great Max Evans and Slim Randles. There are photos from the staff of the Balloon Museum and of course Travelin’ Jack. And dozens of pet owners from around the world.

It is the least we all can do to turn a tragedy into help for pets—a lasting legacy in the name of Terrie Q Sayre.

A portion of all sales will be donated to three animal welfare organizations:
Kennel Kompadres, the friends organization for the Albuquerque City Animal Welfare Department, supports humane education, adoptions, and the City spay/neuter voucher program.
Save Lucky Paws is the official non-profit which supports the Lucky Paws adoption site in Coronado Mall.
Sunflower Sanctuary Animal Rescue provides a home for handicapped dogs and dogs with behavioral issues


This event is free and open to the public.

Local Acclaimed Author Caroline Starr Rose
shares her new title Blue Birds on
Sunday, March 15th at 2:00 pm.


It’s 1587 and twelve-year-old Alis has made the long journey with her parents from England to help settle the New World, the land christened Virginia in honor of the Queen. And Alis couldn’t be happier. While the streets of London were crowded and dirty, this new land, with its trees and birds and sky, calls to Alis. Here she feels free. But the land, the island Roanoke, is also inhabited by the Roanoke tribe and tensions between them and the English are running high, soon turning deadly.

Amid the strife, Alis meets and befriends Kimi, a Roanoke girl about her age. Though the two don’t even speak the same language, these girls form a special bond as close as sisters, willing to risk everything for the other. Finally, Alis must make an impossible choice when her family resolves to leave the island and bloodshed behind.

A beautiful, tender story of friendship and the meaning of family, Caroline Starr Rose delivers another historical gem.

This event is free & open to the public.
