Smithfield Times article about Tahoma and Charnell's appearances

Charnell’s two appearances in Smithfield Virginia (Don’t miss her at Ham Town Books this weekend) got this sizeable newspaper article about Quincy Tahoma and his biography in the local paper. Here’s one small portion:

“Every once in a while we’d have a break through,” Havens said of the time they were able to track down the family who adopted Tahoma as a baby before 1920. “It was a big hole” ¬†in the story, Havens said.

If you don’t live in Virginia, and can’t get over to Ham Town Books this weekend, you can aim your mouse at these articles on the Internet to learn more about Tahoma’s world and our work.

  2. The Writers’ Inner Journey invited Vera to talk about her approach to writing, and she revealed her deepest secrets. See why she was happy to have a good editor (Charnell) as she worked on Quincy Tahoma’s biography.
  3. Wandering Educators this week features Vera’s trip to Museum Hill in Santa Fe–a second home for Charnell and Vera during research on Quincy Tahoma: The Life and Legacy of a Navajo Artist.
  4. And Kerry Dexter, who previously published an interview at Gather about writing the biography of Navajo artist Quincy Tahoma, also decided to give a tip of the hat to a Navajo musician and to our book in this article on music for a spring road trip.
  5. The most popular stop on our blog tour for the Tahoma biography has been Reel Life With Jane, where Vera wrote about the way that Hollywood treats American Indians.
