Reading by Catalina Claussen April 7

cover of the book Diamonds at Dawn

On Saturday, April 7, 2:00pm at the Tranquilbuzz Coffee House (112 W Yankie Street in downtown Silver City) Catalina Claussen will read from her newly-released young adult novel, Diamonds at Dawn. The book is a sequel to her first YA novel Diamonds at Dusk. Having observed that many YA novels are set in urban areas, Claussen wrote her series to mirror the experiences of teens in rural areas.

The Grant County Beat posted an article about Claussen’s work and inspiration.

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).
