If your group or organization has an event that involves a book, we’d like to hear about it. Any time people gather for a reading or book signing, the library would like to feature it on the blog. A case in point is the audience of about 40 people who showed up at the Rising Moon Gallery in Abiqiuiu last Sunday, February 27, 2012 for a reading and signing of “Rio Grande Sand in Your Shoes,” a memoir involving the personal and community history of Espanola by Isabel Ziegler.
When paying a visit to Espanola Hospital you may notice the portrait on the lobby wall of Dr. Sam Ziegler, the hospital’s first staff physician. Many area individuals and families can recall one story or another of this busy physician and surgeon who tended to the medical needs of the residents of the Espanola Valley. The story behind Dr. Ziegler’s life and family is told in detail and eloquently by Mrs. Ziegler in the book, “Rio Grande Sand in Your Shoes,” which is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for $26.95. If people want a signed copy, Isabel Ziegler is happy to accommodate. Call her at 505-747-1231. The book is published by Sunstone Press.
And don’t forget the upcoming Read-a-Thon at the Abiquiu Library and Cultural Center on March 18th at the library where the book, “Adventures in the Unknown Interior of America” by Cabeza De Vaca will be featured. If you have an idea for a posting about a community event featuring a book, contact the blog editor through the library. Support our library and those who love books!
