2023 Arizona Author Series
Thursday, March 2
2023 Arizona Author Series  (Presentation)
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
via Zoom

Wynne Brown will present a talk about her book The Forgotten Botanist: Sara Plummer Lemmon's Life of Science and Art as part of the State of Arizona Research Library’s 2023 Arizona Author Series. The talk is at 1 p.m. MST, Thursday, March 2nd, and will be held virtually on Zoom. After the talk, there will be time for questions from the audience.

In 1870, Sara Plummer left the East coast and migrated to Santa Barbara for health reasons. Soon after, she established the town's first library and taught herself botany. Ten years later, she married botanist John Gill Lemmon and they documented hundreds of species of new flora throughout the Southwest. Though she was a botanical expert, lecturer, and an artist (including drawing the plants she discovered alongside her husband), she is often rarely credited for her contribution to the field. Instead, she is acknowledgement merely as “J.G. Lemmon & wife.” Event link: https://azsos.libcal.com/calendar/starl/mar2023

Free In-Person Presentation featuring Melanie Sturgeon:  "But Isn't Everything On-Line? Finding Your Ancestor in a Government Archives"
Family history researchers have access to unprecendented numbers of on-line digitized records. However, there are hundreds of records that FamilySearch, Ancestry.com, and other do not digitize. Many of these non-digitized records reside in state and local government archives and are often the records that help break down those proverbial brick walls. This presentation discusses the kinds of records you will find in archives throught the U.S.

2023 Arizona Author Series

2023 Arizona Author Series  (Presentation)
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
via Zoom

Dr. Lloyd L. Lee will present a talk about his book Diné Identity in a Twenty-First-Century World, as part of the State of Arizona Research Library’s 2023 Arizona Author Series. The talk is at 1 p.m. MST, Thursday, April 6th, and will be held virtually on Zoom. After the talk, there will be time for questions from the audience. 

As a citizen of the Navajo Nation, Lloyd L. Lee offers a thoughtful and personal, yet distinctly holistic, answer to the question of what it means to be Diné and human in today's world. By utiliizing a Diné-centric approach to explain identity, Lee showcases a deep appreciation for the Diné way of life. He brings together elements of Diné baa hane’ (Navajo history), Sa’ą́h Naagháí Bik’eh Hózhǫ́ǫ́n (harmony), Diné Bizaad (language), K’é (relations), K’éí (clanship), and Níhi Kéyah (land) to understand and think about the past, present, and future. This study also includes the cultural and historical diversity among the Diné people, showcasing the spectrum of possibilities that are possible.

2023 Arizona Author Series
Thursday, May 11
2023 Arizona Author Series  (Presentation)
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
via Zoom

Carolyn Niethammer will present a talk about her book A Desert Feast: Celebrating Tucson's Culinary Heritage, as part of the State of Arizona Research Library’s 2023 Arizona Author Series. The talk is at 1 p.m. MST, Thursday, May 11th, and will be held virtually on Zoom. After the talk, there will be time for questions from the audience.

Tucson cuisine combines the influences and foodways of Indigenous, Mexican, mission-era Mediterranean, and ranch-style cowboy traditions into something wholly unique to the desert. It is no wonder, then, that Tucson became American’s first UNESCO City of Gastronomy. In A Desert Feast, Carolyn Niethammer honors this history and shows how waves of immigrants, travelers, and settlers have shaped this confluence of flavors and techniques to create food that smells and tastes unlike anything else. In this book, she interviews farmers, chefs, families, and entrepreneurs who are dedicated to preserving and expanding Tucson cuisine. Event link: https://azsos.libcal.com/calendar/starl/may2023
