Taos Historical society launches book signing

-A A +A

The Taos County Historical Society is hosting a book-signing event on Nov. 22 for their newly released book, “Taos: A Topical History.” The 320-page, hardcover book aims at preserving the history and stories involving Taos, where three cultures (Tiwa, Spanish, and Anglo) have shared land, water, and traditions. The Society brought out the book in hopes of deepening the public’s appreciation of Taos and stimulating future research and writing.

The book was edited by Corina A. Santistevan and Julia Moore of the Society and published in association with the Museum of New Mexico Press. A book-signing reception hosted by the society will be from 4-6 p.m. Nov. 22 at the Spirit Runner Gallery and includes light refreshments.
The Gallery is located at 303 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, across from Michael’s Kitchen.

“This book is the culmination of the society’s mission, which has been to record and preserve the irreplaceable, from the time when Taos was a remote, harsh place that sheltered Northern New Mexico’s earliest dwellers, to the first decade following World War II,” said Paul Figueroa, Program Chairman for the Society. “Taos was the site of many clashes between successive and coexisting Tiwa, Hispanic and Anglo cultures.
