Saturday’s Book Fair spanned the lobby, main hall and upstairs area of Fuller Lodge. Browsers and shoppers had the opportunity to meet authors, discuss their works, or pick up a signed copy of a new release to tuck away for a holiday gift. Several recently released titles were showcased, including Cindy Bellinger’s Walking on Burnt Mountain, A Spiritual Quest in Los Alamos. And for history buffs interested in the Manhattan Project, Don Farrell’s Tinian, A Brief History has been reissued and was available. Bathtub Row Press had the newly-released soft cover of its award-winning book, At Home on the Slopes of Mountains: The Story of Peggy Pond Church. The event concluded with a tour of the Los Alamos Historic District. Photo by Carol A. Clark/
