Local Author Loretta Hall

We'll welcome New Mexico Author Loretta Hall on Saturday, August 16th at 2:30pm to discuss her new book Space Pioneers: In Their Own Words

From Loretta Hall's website about the book: While researching my 2011 book, Out of this World: New Mexico's Contributions to Space Travel, I became aware of a valuable but underutilized resource for the history of the United States' space program. Since 1986, the New Mexico Museum of Space History staff have recorded oral history interviews of people involved in all aspects of space research since the 1940s. Some of the interviewees are well known, like Gene Kranz and Eileen Collins. Others are nearly anonymous but essential contributors like electricians and welders.

The interview transcripts are only accessible to researchers who can travel to Alamogordo in southern New Mexico. To make those experiences widely accessible, along with commentary that establishes the context for each period of development, I wrote Space Pioneers: In Their Own Words. It includes excerpts of varying lengths from nearly a hundred interviewees, along with historic photographs that bring their experiences to life.

This event is free and open to the public.

shares Rollover: A Dan Mahoney Mystery
on Tuesday, August 19th at 6:30pm.

A bank heist turns sleepy little Wagon Mound, New Mexico on its ear. It’s no straight-forward, demand all the money at gun-point, and run out the front door kind of robbery. It’s a sneaky tunneling that probably took months to complete and put the thieves in a room of safe deposit boxes—not the vault which held some two million. Safe deposit boxes? What could have made it worthwhile to bypass a cool couple million?

Maybe the one hundred and ten year old sapphire and diamond necklace belonging to eighty-five year old Gertrude Kennedy was the lure. United Life and Casualty carried a policy on it for five hundred thousand and sent their investigator, Dan Mahoney to sort things out.

But he didn’t quite get there when expected. Catching a ride when his Jeep overheats, Dan is the hapless passenger in a rollover that kills the driver and puts him in the hospital only to find out this was no accident. Someone wants him out of Wagon Mound at any cost.

He doesn’t scare easily. He hasn’t lived his life looking over his shoulder and he’s not starting now. But when fiancée, Elaine Linden, disappears and people close to the case turn up dead, maybe he should reconsider. The note slipped under his door in the dead of night says it all—“it’s not what you think”.

This event is free and open to the public.
