SAR Scholar in Residence, Nancy Owen Lewis, to Speak at the 2017 Albuquerque Museum Author Festival
The Albuquerque Museum’s second annual Author Festival will be held on Saturday, November 11, at the museum. The event will feature twenty-five New Mexico writers, with four authors giving solo presentations. One of the four is SAR’s scholar in residence Nancy Owen Lewis. At 11 a.m., she will discuss the role of canines in the defense industry during World War II. She is currently working on a manuscript on that topic. Her most recent book, Chasing the Cure in New Mexico: Tuberculosis and the Quest for Health, was named the Best Book in New Mexico History at the Arizona-New Mexico Book Awards. It also received the Southwest Book Award from the El Paso Border Regional Library Association and the Gaspar Peréz Villagrá Award from the Historical Society of New Mexico.
