Albuquerque, NM, March 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- College professor/part-time NM resident Dan Cillis will be talking about his new novel, Statehood of Affairs at area events this weekend. The book outlines the possibility of a different history for New Mexico—one that may have put NM’s statehood in jeopardy—a topic, especially relevant during this Centennial year.
Events are free:
Saturday, March 10 at 2pm
Bookworks, 4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW, Albuquerque
Sunday, March 11 at 3pm (a shared reading with author Rudy Apodaca)
Collected Works, 202 Galisteo St Ste A, Santa Fe
Thursday, March 15 at (6pm)
Range Café, 925 Camino Del Pueblo, Bernalillo
Set in 1911 New Mexico, Statehood of Affairs is a political adventure that artfully reveals an international conspiracy involving Old Mexico that threatens New Mexico and Arizona statehood 100 years ago. The unjust commitment of a woman to an insane asylum reveals a plot to find a secret document hidden after the Mexican-American war. If found before New Mexico obtains statehood, Mexico could legally recover those lost border territories—and change history.
