More than 20 authors and publishers will gather to sell their books Sept. 8 at Fuller Lodge, during the first Los Alamos Book Fair, sponsored by the Los Alamos Historical Society and its publishing venture, Bathtub Row Press.
Between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., shoppers can meet the authors, discuss their work or pick up a signed copy of a new release to tuck away for a holiday gift. Several recently released titles will be showcased, including Cindy Bellinger’s “Walking on Burnt Mountain, A Spiritual Quest in Los Alamos.”
And for history buffs interested in the Manhattan Project, Don Farrell’s “Tinian, A Brief History,” has been reissued and will be available. Bathtub Row Press will have the newly-released soft cover of its award-winning book, “At Home on the Slopes of Mountains: The Story of Peggy Pond Church.”
Shopping and refreshments await visitors to Fuller Lodge, followed by free tours of the Los Alamos Historic District at 3 p.m. for anyone interested in the stories associated with Ashley Pond, the Ice House Memorial and the log and stone houses of Bathtub Row, a preview of the proposed Manhattan Project National Historical Park.
The Los Alamos Historical Society has published more than 30 books on the history of the Pajarito Plateau, from hiking guides to a young adult fiction book about the Manhattan Project.
