Books & Writers

CCAI and the Carson City Library's"spring Books & Writers Project" continues with a reading by writer and Western Nevada College professor Ursula Carlson, author of "Trails of Historic New Mexico: Routes Used By Indian, Spanish, and American Travelers Through 1886". The book surveys the major historic trails of New Mexico and other parts of the American Southwest. The trails were used by Indians, prospectors, soldiers, buffalo hunters, immigrants, and cattle and sheep drovers. Unlike more famous Western trails, they were used as a network of two-way trade routes instead of one-way avenues for westward migration.

Ms. Carlson will also offer a workshop on Thursday afternoon, May 13 from 3:30–4:30pm.


NB: Upcoming Books & Writers events:

* * a writing workshop on Tuesday, May 11 [3:30– 4:30pm], and a reading on Saturday, May 15 [1–2pm] by Carson City native Heidi Ayarbe, author of Freeze Frame and Compromised.


The events are free. The public is cordially invited!

The 2010 edition of Books & Writers is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council "Tumblewords" program.
