I'd like to thank everyone who attended any one of the five readings/lectures that I presented this summer on my new book. This is one of my loves, and I enjoyed it all immensely. Many thanks to the following for having sponsored a reading/signing or who invited me to speak at their society:  National Hispanic Cultural Center of New Mexico, Treasure House Books, Bookworks, New Mexico Genealogical Society at the Albuquerque Public Library, and the Hispanic Genealogical Research Center of New Mexico at Special Collections/Botts Hall. My book is on sale through Bookworks, the UNM Bookstore, Treasure House Books, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble and of course through my publisher LPD Press / Río Grande Books.
