Diving into Books at the Santa Fe International Literary Festival

This past weekend, I attended the Santa Fe International Literary Festival. Perfect spring weather inspired my husband and I to ride our bikes over; held in downtown Santa Fe near the plaza, this event was packed with author speakers, book signings and booksellers from all over. The festival felt like a good intro to summer reading.

We heard one author speak: David Treuer, whose recent book “The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee” aims to shatter myths about Native American life, serving as a kind of response to the often-read “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” by Dee Brown.

Another highlight was stumbling upon the open-mic reading during the lunch hour right when we arrived!

Interested in more of my posts about books and reading? Check out my posts about the books “The Time In Between” (“Entre costuras”), “The Seamstress and the Wind” (“La costura y el viento”), and “The Truce” (La tregua).
