Taos women honored in book

-A A +A

A new book celebrating the Remarkable Women of Taos will be launched 5-8 p.m. on July 25, starting with an autograph party, at the KTAOS Solar Center, 9 9 Ski Valley Road off Highway 150 in Taos. The event is free and open to the public.

Remarkable Women of Taos, published by Taos-based Nighthawk Press, contains profiles of 167 historic and contemporary women of Taos.
The profiles were based on the questions of why there are so many remarkable women in Taos, and what it is about Taos that attracts and sustains so many women.
The 316-page book is a compilation of content from the taos.org/women profiles written by numerous contributors.
Elizabeth Cunningham served as project orchestrator and editor of book.

Cunningham said that the book is a “year-end report” of sorts, commemorating the Town of Taos’ 2012 award winning “Remarkable Women of Taos” theme, which offered year round educational programs, events, workshops and exhibitions designed to spotlight the women of past and present who have made an impact in the Taos community.
