Creating the Taos Novel

Ok. Yes, we’ve been in magical Taos for more than 10 days to research the third novel in my trilogy and so busy with enticing experiences that I’ve neglected my blog.  The weather is gorgeous, the sky an animated painting. Just a short rundown (then more details in the days to come):

• This past week special films at the Harwood Museum on Black Mountain College, Glenn Gould, How to create a gorge in a few million years.

• Interviews with several individuals who have been informants on the project, two dinner parties, three dinners out with friends.

• A reading and presentation on Millicent Rogers by local author Cherie Burns.

• An evening for the presentation on Awakening in Taos about Mabel Dodge Luhan.

Ali McGraw at a reception, then reading from Mabel’s memoir.  Producer Mark Gordon stayed with us.

• The magnificent San Geronimo day at the Pueblo, including lunch in one of the homes on the site. Details on this next time.

• An interview with BBC for a special Lawrence in Taos to be aired on November 4.

• A visit by daughter Laura, and her husband Terry, for the weekend.

• My reading from Etruscan Evenings at the La Fonda Hotel, co-sponsored by the Friends of DH Lawrence, The Southwest Literary Muses, and the Moby Dickens bookstore.

Another busy week coming up, including a visit to the Lawrence Ranch with the BBC crew and author Geoff Dyer, then two days in Santa Fe.
