Actor Wes Studi and author Michael McGarrity will join the celebration of the late author Tony Hillerman. 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. It will be narrated by Anne Hillerman, his eldest daughter. She and her husband, photographer Don Strel, spent three years visiting the iconic landscapes Tony used as settings for his Indian country mysteries. She will share memories of her life with her father, and his travels. Billie Blair will serve as mistress of ceremonies. The program will be followed by a reception and book signing. Books will be available for purchase.
