The Daily Word in Looting, SCOTUS and Affirmative Action

The Daily Word

The maximum prom level has been achieved.

How do human rights and global warming intersect?

It's not just congress that can't agree on anything.

Texas is surprisingly holding true to their affirmative action program, albeit barely.

For many homeowners whose homes were spared from the Dog Head Fire, they weren't spared from looting.

Local Fantasy/Space Opera Writer at Page 1

Daniel Abraham, best-selling local fantasy and space opera author, will be at Page One Books at 4pm on Saturday, June 25, to talk about and sign his latest epic fantasy novel, The Spider's War: The Dagger and the Coin Book 5, which marks the conclusion to this series.

The book is described as such: "Lord Regent Geder Palliako's great war has spilled across the world, nation after nation falling before the ancient priesthood and weapon of dragons. But even as conquest follows conquest, the final victory retreats before him like a mirage. Schism and revolt begin to erode the foundations of the empire, and the great conquest threatens to collapse into a permanent conflict of all against all. In Carse, with armies on all borders, Cithrin bel Sarcour, Marcus Wester and Clara Kalliam are faced with the impossible task of bringing a lasting peace to the world. Their tools: traitors high in the imperial army, the last survivor of the dragon empire, and a financial scheme that is either a revolution or the greatest fraud in the history of the world."

Abraham is the author of the critically-acclaimed Long Price Quartet. He has been nominated for the Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy awards, and won the International Horror Guild award. He also writes as MLN Hanover and (with Ty Franck) James S.A. Corey. Corey's space opera books have been turned into "The Expanse" TV series on the SyFy Channel, which has been renewed for a second season. He lives in Albuquerque with his family.

Taos Painter Presents Memoir at Page 1

Anita Rodriguez, painter and adobe plasterer from Taos, will be at Page One Books at 3pm on Sunday, June 19, to talk about and sign her memoir of stories and recipes, Coyota in the Kitchen: A Memoir of New and Old Mexico.

The book is described as such: "This book of stories and recipes introduces two eccentric families that would never have eaten together, let alone exchanged recipes, but for the improbable marriage of the author's parents: a nuevo mexicano from Taos and a painter who came from Texas to New Mexico to study art. Recalling the good and the terrible cooks in her family, Anita Rodríguez also shares the complications of navigating a safe path among contradictory cultural perspectives. She takes us from the mountain villages of New Mexico in the 1940s to sipping mint juleps on the porch of a mansion in the South, and also on a prolonged pilgrimage to Mexico and back again to New Mexico. Accompanied by Rodríguez's vibrant paintings—including scenes of people eating on fiesta nights and plastering an adobe church—Coyota in the Kitchen shows how food reflects the complicated family histories that shape our lives."

Rodríguez is an award-winning painter who is also widely known as an enjarradora, or plasterer and finisher of adobe buildings. Her family on her father's side goes back 10 generations in her beloved Taos valley. Her art training began in childhood, and she eventually went to Colorado College for formal training. She lives in Taos.

Steamy, Wonton Romance

May Café serves a tantalizing Thai tea

Never judge a book by its cover, and never judge a restaurant by its exterior. To miss out on good food because of poor judgment is a sin, so when you see a massive armless lumberjack looming above the plain outer surface of May Café, don’t be alarmed.
