This Caturday, um, we mean, Saturday, you're invited to the dedication of The Vanity Bench honoring the sophisticated literary calico cat, Vanity, with Peggy and David van Hulsteyn. This sunny bench at the Southside Library is a tribute to the feisty feline’s literary accomplishments. A reception will follow the dedication.
Vanity,the Eloise of the Cat World, produced two classics, Diary of a Santa Fe Cat and Vanity in Washington. The van Hulsteyns hope you can join them to celebrate Vanity’s felicitous life and to commemorate her tireless quest for a good nap and a good book.
Peggy Van Hulsteyn won the Southwest Writers Workshop Storyteller Award for Best Novel for her murder mystery in-progress. She was awarded first place for non-fiction by The New Mexico Press Women for her book, Mind Your Own Business, and she won a Certificate of Excellence in Humor for Vanity in Washington from the Cat Writers Association. Van Hulsteyn, who attended the University of Missouri Journalism School, holds a degree in English and journalism from Indiana University. She now lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with her physicist husband and two literary and bird-friendly cats.
