Celebrating Tony Hillerman

Tony Hillerman’s daughter, Anne, was just at the Poisoned Pen. Hillerman himself appeared here, but he also spoke with bookstore owner Barbara Peters at the National Book Festival. The Library of Congress has made copies of those talks available.


There’s also second short talk, but while the Library is updating its website, that one is not linking.

You can also listen to Barbara Peters talk with Jamie McGrath Morris who is writing a biography of Tony Hillerman. It’s scheduled for publication in 2020. This podcast is just the first in a series of conversations about the progress of the book. The publisher will be the University of Oklahoma. https://poisonedpen.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/audio_04_02_2018_11_04_33.mp3
