The Western Writers of America will hold their annual conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico on June 12-16, 2012. I'll be attending with my wife. Ought to be great fun. There will be a book signing by all the authors at Barnes and Noble, Coronado Mall from 4:00 to 7:00 on Friday, June 15. This will be a great celebration of the centennial for New Mexico and Arizona. By the way, New Mexico became a state on January 6, 1912, while my home state of Arizona became a state on February 14, 1912. New Mexico beat us by a month, but we get to claim to be the last contiguous state to join the union.
