I realize this is an American thing..and you may not be celebrating as we are–but Happy Day, anyhow. What are you thankful for this year? Of course, I am always grateful for TRAVEL. Although much of my travel has been close to home, I’ve explored some scenic and interesting corners of America. After being sidelined by some back problems in the early months of the year, things warmed up. Here’s a quiet Thanks for the opportunities I have had. And I hope you have lots to be thankful for also. April: Heard Museum Fair, Phoenix
Are you booking your travel to Arizona for March, to see the wildflowers? Need more excuses?
March 3 and 4 the Heard Museum in Phoenix hosts one of the largest Indian Art Fairs in the country. Besides every form of art–and only the best, because it is a juried show–there will be performances and book signings. (Including yours truly signing copies of Quincy Tahoma on Saturday afternoon.)
March 10 and 11, as a book lover, you can enter nirvana–the Tucson Festival of Books, one of the five biggest in the country. Hundreds of authors, scores of panels and lectures, special programs for kids and delicious food booths will greet you at the University of Arizona campus. Many of the authors discussed here during Arizona Centennial Week will be present–Jim Turner, Jan Cleere, Jim Kristofic, Carolyn O’Bagy Davis among them. (And I’ll be there with Quincy Tahoma, again–both signing books at the Arizona Museum tent and speaking on a panel at 2:30 on Sunday afternoon).
Come meet authors from around the country, see the wildflowers in bloom, and celebrate Arizona’s 100th year.
