Posted By on Thu, May 16, 2019 at 1:31 PM

Looking for something fun to do at your library? Mark your calendars for three author events at Dusenberry-River and Joel D. Valdez Main Libraries.

Linda Strader

Saturday, May 18, noon to 1 p.m.
Joel D. Valdez Main Library

Author Linda Strader will discuss and sign copies of Summers of Fire: A Memoir of Adventure, Love, and Courage. The book follows the personal and physical challenges she had to overcome as one of the first women to work on a fire crew for the U.S. Forest Service, a career where women were generally not welcome in 1976.

Kate Stewart
Thursday, May 30, 6–7 pm
Dusenberry-River Library

Book launch of Kate Stewart's A Well-Read Woman: The Life, Loves, and Legacy of Ruth Rappaport. Stewart's captivating tale tells the unconventional story of librarian Ruth Rappaport. Inspired by her childhood in Nazi Germany, where books were burned and banned, Rappaport spent the rest of her long life devoted to liberating books for the readers of the world.

Marge Pellegrino and Kay Sather

Saturday, June 8, 3–4:30 pm
Dusenberry-River Library

Former Library Writer in Residence and longtime customer favorite, Marge Pellegrino returns with local author Kay Sather to launch their new book Neon Words: 10 Brilliant Ways to Light Up Your Writing. Enjoy readings, a raffle, a short film, and a fun make-and-take activity from the book. Customers will also be treated to mesquite cookies and prickly pear lemonade while they last.

Books will be available for sale at all three events. Call the info line at (520) 791-4010 for more information.
