Hear Me Read in Taos! (Updated)

Taos Writers on Taos

Interesting weekend…

Here’s your chance to see me in person! I’ll be reading a few killer selections of my work at the above event from 4:00 to 4:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 25, with a short question-and-answer session afterwards. Expect the timing to be somewhat improvised. Note that the theme is Taos itself, which raises certain dangers. The tension may be fun, though.

I’ve appended an ever-changing preliminary schedule below that tells you who else will be reading and when. Some of them are heavy hitters, and all are worth your time, but afficionados of a particular segment of the “old guard” in Taos are advised to catch John Nichols’ opening talk on Friday night and pretty much everything Saturday after me, especially Saturday night. There are many tribes here, and this is one of them. (I’m from a different branch but just as old and look the part, so I can fake it.) There will be name-dropping like crazy going on all weekend. Come have a listen and meet some folks!

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

    Wish I could be there 🙂

      Carmel! Yes, I wish you could be here, too. Most likely I won’t read anything you haven’t seen here already, but I’m a great reader!

    Sorry that I live so far away or I would be there! What a fun way to show your talent! Hope you have fun and meet some fans!
