All of these titles will be available, as well as the hand-made book, Poems2. Original cover designs by artist Fred Barraza for M.

During the entire weekend of the Southwest Festival of the Written Word, the Gallery will feature a special selection of the artwork of Joseph Wade, Elvira Godfrey, Christopher Saxman and Leighton Fossom. Also available will be Wade’s hand-made book Poems2, a large selection of Golden West Publishers’ Southwestern specialty Cookbooks, and several area  Historical Publications.

Enriching Life Through Learning in Community

We respectfully acknowledge that the entirety of southwestern New Mexico is the traditional territory, since time immemorial, of the Chis-Nde, also known as the people of the Chiricahua Apache Nation. The Chiricahua Apache Nation is recognized as a sovereign Native Nation by the United States in the Treaty of Amity, Commerce, and Friendship of 1 July 1852 (10 Stat. 979) (Treaty of Santa Fe ratified 23 March 1853 and proclaimed by President Franklin Pierce 25 March 1853).
