"Rewrites" with Connie Willis and Melinda Snodgrass
Discover Filmmaking in New Mexico with Jeff Berg
Local author and historian Jeff Berg will be visiting Page One on Sunday, December 6th at 3:00pm with his new book, New Mexico Filmmaking.
The moderate climate and majestic western landscapes of New Mexico make it an enchanting locale for the motion picture industry. Thomas A. Edison's crew shot the very first film in the state at the Isleta Indian Pueblo in 1897. Silent-era icons like directors Romaine Fielding and Tom Mix shortly followed to take over the small town of Las Vegas, setting the stage for an explosion of western movies. Today, New Mexico's generous incentive programs and quality facilities make it one of the top filming destinations in the country, attracting big projects like the Academy Award-winning No Country for Old Men and AMC's critically acclaimed television series Breaking Bad. In this comprehensive volume, Jeff Berg explores the history and legacy of New Mexico on the big screen.
Jeff Berg is a Santa Fe based film historian and freelance film writer.
Test Your Ancient World Knowledge with Rich Field
Local author, Rich Field, will be visiting Page One on Sunday, January 10th at 3:00pm to discuss his recent publication, From the Sands of the Arena: Ancient World Trivia for the 21st Century. Prizes and treats will be awarded throughout the event to trivia winners, and Rich will even ask some questions that aren't in the book!
Some questions contain worlds; some of them are much of what we have from those worlds. From questions that make us slap our foreheads to questions that leave us staring off, these trivia questions form a mosaic of the ancient Greek and Roman world. Clearly a labor of many years of love, this collection takes us by the hand through a labyrinth of surprise turns, sudden stops, and endlessly delightful esoterica.
Embrace Life Under the Albuquerque Sun with Anne Key
Albuquerque author, Anne Key, will be visiting Page One on Thursday, January 14th at 6:30pm to discuss her latest work, Burlesque, Yoga, Sex and Love: Life Under the Albuquerque Sun.
In this memoir, author Anne Key invites us to walk along the glittery, rhinestone-encrusted path of self-discovery as she confronts, and transcends, the established norms for middle-aged women. Set in picturesque Albuquerque, this memoir explores what it means to connect the body, mind and spirit through the practices of yoga and burlesque. By the end of the book, you will find yourself traveling outside the shadowy corners of fear and toward a brighter light where there is freedom to be found in accepting yourself and in learning to love what you find.
Anne wants to live in a world where women are wild, knees don't age, the fragrance of flowers fills the air, and we all love--and are loved for being--exactly who we are. She resides in Albuquerque with her husband, his three cats and her snake. When she's not writing or grading papers, you can find her pushing taffeta through a sewing machine or strapping on her heels for rehearsal.
