Roger Zimmerman: Son of an Indian Trader

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Join us LIVE on Facebook, @galluplibrary on May 19th at 4:00 p.m. for a talk featuring historian Roger Zimmerman. Chronicling his personal life at the Mariano Lake Trading Post, Zimmerman discusses his experiences and what he learned about the cultures and life of those living in and around Gallup. This represents the first two chapters from his memoir. Roger Zimmerman spent much of his life working for Sandia National Labs. Upon his retirement, he decided to take up history and wrote his first book, Kitchen’s Opera House, Gallup NM. He soon became active in the Albuquerque Historical Society and began speaking on various historical topics about NM and the Gallup Area. Email or call (505) 863-1291 for more information.
