A great night was had by all attending the New Mexico Book Association’s Winter Festival and celebration of its 25th year.
The event room at the Bourbon Grill was decorated for the occasion, and the program included a slide presentation of the history of the NM Book Association from its roots to present day arranged by board member and program chairman, Jessie Emerson.
President Jared Gann officiated the program, and Sandi Wright, membership chairman of the board, presented the awards.
Special sponsors for this event were Casa Snapdragon Press, Art Academy de los Ninos and Collected Works Bookstore. A special thank you to them!
Another special guest present was Jim Mafchir, former longtime board member, New Mexico Book Association past president, and the founder of our Southwest Book Design Award contest.
Menu fare was a Mexican buffet of cheese and chicken enchiladas, a taco bar, salad, iced tea, coffee, and a cash bar. A special cake noting the 25th anniversary was served for dessert. There were no complaints about the food or the program. A big success and great celebration was had by all.
