The Big Read

In partnership with The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and the National Endowment For The Arts' Big Read,The Santa Fe Public Library will be hosting programs about Rudolfo Anaya's beloved novel, Bless Me, Ultima. Here is where I need to self disclose that I reviewed Bless Me, Ultima glowingly when it was first published and was honored with Rudolfo at a special party when I moved to Santa Fe. I have collected almost everything he has written, from his adult work to his children’s works. This is my favorite banned book author and favorite banned book, and I have read many.

Mark your calendars and check the Library’s website news for future programs:
