To celebrate Tony Hillerman Week, November 1-8, the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library are delighted to host an intimate multimedia presentation and book signing for Anne Hillerman’s new book, Tony Hillerman's Landscape: On the Road with Chee and Leaphorn. The Harper Collins book features photographs by Don Strel.
The program will be held Sunday, November 8, 2009, from 4 - 6 pm, at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, 201 W. Marcy Street.
This event will feature a slide show of photographs from the book, showing the places in Indian country that served as the inspiration for Tony Hillerman's mystery novels.

She will share memories of her life with her father, and his travels.
