BOOK FAIR News:
Los Alamos Book Fair And A Spring Day—A Winning Combination—Something for Everyone!
That’s the theme for the Los Alamos Book Fair coming to Fuller Lodge April 25, sponsored by Bathtub Row Press of the Los Alamos Historical Society and the Los Alamos Creative District.
Twenty authors and publishers will be selling novels, young adult fiction, childen’s stories, memoirs, history, graphic novels, comics, poetry, spirituality, mysteries, science fiction and more.
In addition to the sales tables, six presentations will be offered throughout the day, offering readings, storytelling, historical observations, down home wit, and advice for writers and would-be authors about writing and publishing.
Among the presenters will be a treat for children (of all ages!) when New Mexico storyteller Nasario Garcia joins us at noon on April 25.
Garcia is unsurpassed as an oral historian who interprets the Hispanic tradition of New Mexico and is the recipient of the Historical Society of New Mexico’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
He will be telling some of the delightful tales from the Hispanic culture in which he grew up in Ojo del Padre in the Rio Puerco Valley. These tales will come primarily from his latest children’s books, Grandpa Lolo and Trampa: A Story of Surprise and Mystery and The Talking Lizard: New Mexico’s Magic and Mystery, both titles from Rio Grande Books.
Grandpa Lolo and Trampa: A Story of Surprise and Mystery by Nasario Garcia
Of these tales, Rudolfo Anaya has said, “I was reminded that the stories our grandparents told not only entertained us, they taught us valuable lessons.”
Garcia is animated and captivating with his rich voice that projects the depth, emotion, and humor in his stories.
Give your little ones—and yourself—an experience to remember. Don’t miss this occasion to hear Nasario Garcia.
Remember, Something for Everyone! Come join in the fun, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Fuller Lodge, April 25.
