Local Author Loretta Hall

We'll welcome New Mexico Author Loretta Hall on Saturday, August 16th at 2:30pm to discuss her new book Space Pioneers: In Their Own Words

From Loretta Hall's website about the book: While researching my 2011 book, Out of this World: New Mexico's Contributions to Space Travel, I became aware of a valuable but underutilized resource for the history of the United States' space program. Since 1986, the New Mexico Museum of Space History staff have recorded oral history interviews of people involved in all aspects of space research since the 1940s. Some of the interviewees are well known, like Gene Kranz and Eileen Collins. Others are nearly anonymous but essential contributors like electricians and welders.

The interview transcripts are only accessible to researchers who can travel to Alamogordo in southern New Mexico. To make those experiences widely accessible, along with commentary that establishes the context for each period of development, I wrote Space Pioneers: In Their Own Words. It includes excerpts of varying lengths from nearly a hundred interviewees, along with historic photographs that bring their experiences to life.

This event is free and open to the public.

New Mexico Author Susan Slater
shares Rollover: A Dan Mahoney Mystery
on Tuesday, August 19th at 6:30pm.

A bank heist turns sleepy little Wagon Mound, New Mexico on its ear. It’s no straight-forward, demand all the money at gun-point, and run out the front door kind of robbery. It’s a sneaky tunneling that probably took months to complete and put the thieves in a room of safe deposit boxes—not the vault which held some two million. Safe deposit boxes? What could have made it worthwhile to bypass a cool couple million?

Maybe the one hundred and ten year old sapphire and diamond necklace belonging to eighty-five year old Gertrude Kennedy was the lure. United Life and Casualty carried a policy on it for five hundred thousand and sent their investigator, Dan Mahoney to sort things out.

But he didn’t quite get there when expected. Catching a ride when his Jeep overheats, Dan is the hapless passenger in a rollover that kills the driver and puts him in the hospital only to find out this was no accident. Someone wants him out of Wagon Mound at any cost.

He doesn’t scare easily. He hasn’t lived his life looking over his shoulder and he’s not starting now. But when fiancée, Elaine Linden, disappears and people close to the case turn up dead, maybe he should reconsider. The note slipped under his door in the dead of night says it all—“it’s not what you think”.

This event is free and open to the public.

Event for YA Book Fans

Local Author Kimberly Griffiths Little is here on Saturday, September 6th at 3pm

Critically acclaimed author Kimberley Griffiths Little spins a thrilling story of one girl's race to unravel the curse that has haunted her family for generations.

When Larissa Renaud starts receiving eerie phone calls on a disconnected old phone in her family's antique shop, she knows she's in for a strange summer. A series of clues leads her to the muddy river banks, where clouds of fireflies dance among the cypress knees and cattails each evening at twilight. The fireflies are beautiful and mysterious, and they take her on a magical journey through time, where Larissa learns secrets about her family's tragic past--deadly, curse-ridden secrets that could harm the future of her family as she knows it. It soon becomes clear that it is up to Larissa to prevent history from repeating itself and a fatal tragedy from striking the people she loves.

With her signature lyricism, Kimberley Griffiths Little weaves a thrilling tale filled with family secrets, haunting mystery, and dangerous adventure.

This event is free and open to the public.

Lord Regent Geder Palliako's war has led his nation and the priests of the spider goddess to victory after victory. No power has withstood him, except for the heart of the one woman he desires. As the violence builds and the cracks in his rule begin to show, he will risk everything to gain her love or else her destruction. Clara Kalliam, the loyal traitor, is torn between the woman she once was and the woman she has become. With her sons on all sides of the conflict, her house cannot stand, but there is a power in choosing when and how to fall. And in Porte Oliva, banker Cithrin bel Sarcour and Captain Marcus Wester learn the terrible truth that links this war to the fall of the dragons millennia before, and that to save the world, Cithrin must conquer it.

Princess Órlaith, heir to Rudi Mackenzie, Artos the First, High King of Montival, now wields the Sword of the Lady—and faces a new enemy. Fortunately, she also has a new ally in Reiko, Empress of Japan, who has been pursued to America by a conquering army from Asia. To combat their mutual foe, Órlaith and Reiko embark on a quest to find the fabled Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi, the Grass-Cutting Sword, one of the three great treasures of the Japanese Imperial House. But dreams have revealed that the road to Kusanagi lies through the meganecropolis of the City of Angels, the greatest and most perilous of the dead cities...and beyond it, to a castle in the fearful Valley of Death. And their relentless enemy will stop at nothing to prevent them from succeeding. For across the Pacific, the great arc of land that stretches from the dark kingdom of Korea to the realm of Capricornia in Australia is threatened by war. Now all the survivors of the Change must choose sides....

Max Evans & Friends

Special Event for
Max Evans & a Few Friends
The 90th Birthday Book
on September 20th at 2:30pm

Max Evans, one of New Mexico’s most prolific writers, has lived, promoted, and articulated the Western way of life for nearly eight decades. With this book, his friends share some of Max’s stories on the occasion of Max’s 90th birthday.

Age is relative for Max Evans. Technically 89, he’s many hundreds of years older, he says, if you count his extensive traversals of metaphysical time and space. Evans moved to the Duke City from Taos in the late ’60s, not long after his first two books, The Rounders and The Hi Lo Country, were published and quickly deemed classics of the Western genre. From there, he’s never stopped seeking ways to tell the stories of the vanishing of the wild American West—always in his characteristically vivid, lyrical style. Evans spent his youth living the depictions in his novels: a cowboy, miner, rancher, combat veteran, barroom brawler and painter. He is just as comfortable drinking whiskey in hotel bars with roughnecks as he is hobnobbing with Hollywood actors and directors. (He’s been friends with Hollywood greats, most notably The Wild Bunch director Sam Peckinpah, who was also the subject of one of Evans’ writing projects.)

Contributors to the book include: Pat, Charlotte and Sheryl Evans, Jim Belshaw, Grem Lee, Jeff Witte, Jim Harris, Johnny Boggs, Daryle Ann Lindley, Jeb and Jeb Stuart Rosebrook, Slim Randles, Bridget Brister, Ollie Reed, Robert Nott, Sherri Burr, Jill Lane, Sue Bason, Luther Wilson, Tim Keller, Jan Haley, Anthony Olmi, Barbe Awalt, Ruth E Francis, Don Bullis, Harley Shaw, and Craig Massey.

Max Evans' attendance is dependent on his health and not guaranteed.

This event is free and open to the public.

When bodies of a woman and an Army officer are found near Fort Fetterman riddled with arrows, outrage threatens to spark an all-out war with the Sioux. Marshal Monday Malone quickly sees the crime as a likely frame-up. Schoolteacher Kate Shaw and Monday work to sift evidence and sort out suspects. Kate comes face to face with the legendary Crazy Horse when she survives a buffalo stampede, then faces death in a warrior's ordeal alongside Indian children. Monday engages in a high stakes knife fight and finally rides a desperate race against the clock to shake an ironclad alibi. Robert Kresge spent 30 years in the CIA and the Army Reserve. He holds a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Missouri and a Masters in Northeast Asian Studies from the George Washington University. He has lived in Albuquerque, NM since 2002. Rob is the author of five historical novels, including 2013's Saving Lincoln, a Civil War spy thriller, and four volumes in the Warbonnet series of mysteries set in 1870's Wyoming

Saving Lincoln, published in 2013, is a standalone title. In the closing days of the Civil War, Beth Wendland, a Union spy in Richmond, learns of a Confederate conspiracy to send a wagon bomb to destroy the White House and kill President Lincoln and his generals. Abandoned by her political masters, Beth must evade Rebel soldiers and the bomb's mastermind to deliver the information to Washington before the conspirators can unleash their deadly attack. Assisted by the Federal officer who loves her, Beth risks more than her life to snuff out the burning fuse of the world's first vehicle bomb and prevent disaster on the eve of victory. With it's strong and resourceful heroine, Saving Lincoln will appeal to readers who enjoyed Cold Mountain and Eye of the Needle.

Steven Gould returns

On Saturday, September 27th at 3pm,
New Mexico Author Steven Gould discusses
his new book Exo: Jumper 4

Cent can teleport. So can her parents, but they are the only people in the world who can. This is not as great as you might think it would be — sure, you can go shopping in Japan and then have tea in London, but it’s hard to keep a secret like that. And there are people, dangerous people, who work for governments and have guns, who want to make you do just this one thing for them. And when you’re a teenage girl things get even more complicated. High school. Boys. Global climate change, refugees, and genocide. Orbital mechanics.
But Cent isn’t easily daunted, and neither are Davy and Millie, her parents. She’s going to make some changes in the world.

Steven Gould is the author of Jumper, Wildside, Helm, Blind Waves, Reflex, Jumper: Griffin’s Story, 7th Sigma, Impulse, and Exo as well as several short stories published in Analog, Asimov’s, and Amazing, and other magazines and anthologies. Gould is currently in collaboration with the writing team behind the upcoming Avatar trilogy of which Gould will write four novels based on the Avatar movies.

This event is free and open to the public.

Buying Local Article

We've found an article that explains how the cost of buying local is not as high as some folks have perceived. Find it here.

Remember that while it's easy to buy from the chain stores, they rarely support the local communities. Chain stores source their goods without careful consideration of quality, focused instead on price. As this article points out, local businesses select goods with their community in mind. Would you rather support your neighbor than a corporate stranger?
