Escribir Nuevo Mexico—Taos County: Featuring NM Authors David Gurule, Rose Spader, and Joanna Vidaurre-Trujillo
The NHCC is proud to present a new reading series featuring books about New Mexico authored by New Mexican writers. Each reading will feature 2-3 writers whose books focus on a particular place in the Land of Enchantment. On Oct. 6 we feature Tortillas and Butter, A Young Man’s Quest for a Meaningful Life by David J. Gurule, Overturned Bucket, by Rose Spader, based on the true story of one woman’s resilience during the New Mexico Territorial fight for land, and Potatoes and Beans/Papas y Frijoles, by Joanna Vidaurre-Trujillo, a collection of short stories and poems written in the traditional Spanish dialect of northern New Mexico, with English translations.
9 am to 9 pm
On October 14th we will present a beginning-to-end, marathon reading of Rudolfo Anaya’s Bless Me, Ultima in the NHCC art museum, where an exhibit about the novel continues through November 11th. Dignitaries, luminaries, public school students, writers, readers, NHCC staff and volunteers, and community members will read from the novel, each for 15 minutes, during this day-long event. Enjoy refreshments, tour the exhibit, and listen to this great American novel.
Free with museum admission
Please join us for a reading by Albuquerque’s fourth (and newest) Poet Laureate. Otero is a tenth generation New Mexican. Her work has appeared in New Mexico Magazine, Brevity, Puerto del Sol, and other literary journals and she is the author of Malinche’s Daughter (essays).
Otero is Creative Director of El Valle Encantado, an organization promoting sustainable development initiatives in Albuquerque’s Atrisco neighborhood. She holds a B.A. in History from Harvard and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Vermont College.
5:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Join us for a special Dia de los Muertos art show. New Mexico artists were invited to create 8” x 8” works of art with poetry or text that honor a place whose absence they mourn—whether a lost region of the Amazon, Chaco Canyon, or an abuela’s kitchen. Proceeds from sales of the works support the artists and NHCC History and Literary Arts programming.
