A Place of Thin Veil: Life and Death in Gallup, New Mexico with Bob Rosebrough

Saturday, May 8, 2021

Join us on Facebook, @galluplibrary and YouTube on Friday, May 8th at 3:00 p.m. for a discussion with local author Bob Rosebrough. With its rugged, violent history and otherworldly landscape, Gallup has ignited the imaginations of an array of famous Americans from John Wayne to Bob Dylan. Tony Hillerman's novels put Navajo culture, and by extension Gallup, on the map. For the Navajo people for whom the region has been home for millennia, the town and its alcohol-fueled economy has a more sinister pull. As an outsider who became an insider, Bob Rosebrough shares Gallup's iconic stories--and reveals its long-hidden secrets. Email or call (505) 863-1291 for more information.
