Dr. Nasario García

On Wednesday, October 18, Dr. Nasario García will present a program, Would You Like To Meet the Devil, Bogeyman, or La Llorona?, at 7 PM in the Community Room at the Main Library. A native of the Rio Puerco Valley and one of New Mexico's leading folklorists, Dr. Garcia will present some of the tales of buried treasures, the devil, the evil eye, the bogeyman, and natural phenomena which were once the keystone of family entertainment in Hispanic villages of northern New Mexico. Loosely gathered under the category of witchcraft, these stories command curiosity and fascination. Everyone, from the very young to mature adults, likes to be spooked.

Free. All ages welcome. This program is made possibly by the New Mexico Humanities Council, the New Mexico Dept of Cultural Affairs, and the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library.

The library has a number of his books.
