Mary Sojourner - Book Release and Benefit Reading
Celebrate the 25th anniversary of Mary Sojourner's novel, "Sister of the Dream", and the release of her new novel "29", in a benefit reading for Friends of Flagstaff's Future on Sep 21st at 4:30pm at Fire Creek Coffee Company 22 E Rte 66, Flagstaff.
Sojourner will read from "29", a novel about renewal, passion, the astonishment of the Mojave Desert and a little town fighting to keep that desert alive. Also, reading from "Sisters of the Dream", a book set in Flagstaff and Wupatki, and F3's 2003 essay collection, "The Heart of Flagstaff".
Martha Shideler, stalwart owner of Aradia Bookstore, will have copies of "29", the novel, "Going Through Ghosts", the essay collection, "Bonelight: Ruin And Grace In The New Southwest" for sale, and one collectable copy of "Going Through Ghosts" for auction.
We will collect donations at the door and, knowing Sojourner, probably pass the hat - there are always a few extra bucks in peoples' pockets! All money collected (except for book sales) go to support F3's ongoing work for a livable community.
