‘Remembering Miss O’Keeffe’

-A A +A

Margaret Wood will share stories and memories of her time with Georgia O’Keeffe as part of the Authors Speak Series at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 in the upstairs rotunda of Mesa Public Library.
In 1977, Wood  began a five-year stay as companion and caretaker to then 89-year-old Georgia O’Keeffe.
There were no sign posts in the village in those years and few markers for a young woman managing the complex role as companion to a woman of O’Keeffe’s stature, who nonetheless was now dependent on others to maintain the independent life she had cultivated.                        
Growing and preparing food was one of O’Keeffe’s greatest pleasures, with the artist mentoring her young caregiver on the art of gardening and cooking. Wood and O’Keeffe often walked the red hills of Ghost Ranch in early evenings.
The artist had a reputation of living a secluded life, but in fact enjoyed welcoming a host of visitors to her home. Wood shares anecdotes about these social exchanges, along with a treasure trove of stories              intimately shared in her new book, “Remembering Miss O’Keeffe: Stories from Abiquiu.”
