Join us for a special party introducing Hard Country (Dutton $28.95) which started out to be a standalone historical about Kevin Kerney’s family and has morphed into the start of a trilogy. Think the Tularosa….
Talton of the David Mapstone Arizona mysteries — Mapstone is a former history professor turned sheriff’s deputy and more recently, gone private eye — is our host in a BOOKS AT THE BILTMORE PARTY!
Doors of the Grand Ballroom open at 6:00 PM. Program at 7:00 followed by both authors signing. McGarrity will be interviewed by Talton, will speak about his research and writing, and there will be time for Questions (and answers)
The event is free and open to the public. However to get books signed you must buy your copy of Hard Country from The Poisoned Pen or at the event.
Cash bar and buffet. We have themed the food to New Mexico (don’t miss the bookies!). Free valet Parking (Tip appreciated).
