The Authors Speak series of lectures continues Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Upstairs Rotunda at Mesa Public Library with author Stephen F. Ledoux, who will talk about his book “Beautiful Sights and Sensations.”

With this book, Ledoux shares his passion for beautiful objects. Ledoux, who is also an expert in the emerging natural science of behaviorology, has travelled and taught extensively. He has held positions in Australia and in China, as well as at the State University of New York at Canton.

He and his wife Nelly Case, also an author, now make their home in Los Alamos. Throughout his travels Ledoux has sought out and enjoyed beautiful objects, often made by natives of whichever region he is visiting. He writes about the sensations that drew him to collect, and also the sights that have inspired him.

“Beyond my own photographic art, these (collections) have focused on some Native American arts, particularly from the Southwest, along with Japanese woodblock prints, Chinese paintings, custom knives and other edged art,” Ledoux writes in his backstory at the start of the book.

The Authors Speak series at Mesa Public Library usually starts at 7 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month. However, this talk will fall on the third Thursday of July.
