Santa Fe Celebrates George R. R. Martin Day Saturday

Author and Santa Fe resident George R. R. Martin gives a thumbs up, as Mayor Javier Gonzales declares March 29 George R. R. Martin Day in Santa Fe. In addition to writing the award-winning ‘Song of Ice and Fire’ book series on which the HBO blockbuster, ‘Game of Thrones’ is based, Martin owns the Jean Cocteau Cinema, which premiered the fourth season of ‘Game of Thrones’ Saturday. ‘It’s wonderful that the top show on television is premiering in Santa Fe in both Spanish and English,’ Gonzales said.
