Author Anne Hillerman - Evenings with Rodin

Every Thursday night we will be offering movies, lessons, or gatherings with a focus on Rodin. Unless otherwise noted, the events are FREE and open to the public.

The Museum will be open from 5-8pm for the public to view the exhibit during these events.

July 25 - Llano Estacado’s Drink and Draw - Artists are welcome to join their friends in the Rodin exhibit for an evening of sketching. Bring your sketch pads and we will supply the "drinks."

This will also be the first event in our Distinguished Author Series, featuring award winning author Anne Hillerman, on July 25, at 6:30 pm. Director of Education, Mary Lyle said "We are delighted to present Anne Hillerman as our first Distinguished Author."

Anne Hillerman, the daughter of the late Southwest mystery writer Tony Hillerman, grew up in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, the eldest of the family’s six children. She received a journalism degree from the University of New Mexico and worked as a newspaper reporter, editor and columnist before becoming a full-time author.

She is honored and delighted to continue the mystery series Tony Hillerman created featuring Navajo detective Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. Anne’s debut novel, Spider Woman’s Daughter, follows the further adventures of the aforementioned characters, and it places one of Tony’s supporting characters, officer Bernadette Manuelito, in the spotlight to make the series her own. Released by HarperCollins, the book received the Spur Award from Western Writers of America for the Best First Novel of 2013.

Hillerman’s fifth novel, The Tale Teller,wasreleased in April of this year. Once again, the Legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn is back as a crime solver. Joining him are Bernadette Manuelito and Sergeant Jim Chee who both use their knowledge of the criminal mind and their well-honed skills of observation and persuasion.

"Anne will be discussing her own work and talking about the legacy of her father," said Lyle. "We have a number of her titles available at the Museum, including her newest novel." "If we have a good response to this event, the Museum will endeavor to invite other notable authors."

The event is free of charge. Attendees are welcome to visit Rodin: Truth, Form, Lifeafter the lecture. For more information call 575-492-2678.
