“Guns: An Anthology” Talk & Signing at the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe
Authors Alice Carne, N. Scott Momaday, Trent Zelazny, Peter Eichstaedt, Jim Terr, Jane Lindskold, Rebecca Poe, Peter Lauritzen, and G & L Hausman will be in Santa Fe on April 2 to talk about and sign copies of the new Guns anthology.
This anthology with more than 20 contributors from a variety of authors has something to please for every fan. Editor and contributor Gerald Hausman introduces the anthology with a brief history of GUNS. Stories range in tone from “The Momaday Gun” by Pulitzer Prize-winning author N. Scott Momaday, to “Choice of Weapons” by New York Times bestselling author Jane Lindskold. There is a spiritual history of firearms as well as a historical one. The truth is, they have been with us for a very long time. Every family has a gun story, a firearm anecdote that bares the bones of the oldest argument there is — the one about the plain old cussedness of the human race. In this unusual and varied collection of tales written by masters of the word, we begin with America’s legendary past — with the pirate Blackbeard and the gunslinger Billy the Kid, followed by Teddy Roosevelt and moving forward in time to Andy Warhol. Here are stories that will shock and bewilder.
The event starts at 1:00 pm Sunday, April 2. Admission is $16.00 which includes a copy of the book, or $10.00 for the event only.
The Jean Cocteau Cinema is located at 418 Montezuma Avenue, north end of the Rail Yard District, in Santa Fe. For more info: 505-466-5528 or JeanCocteauCinema.com.
