On the loose in Durango

Next Thursday, Sept. 20, Maria’s Bookshop will host the kickoff to Renny Russell’s national book tour for Rock Me on the Water: A Life on the Loose. With some of his original artwork gracing the walls at Maria’s, Renny will speak during what is sure to be a teary-eyed slideshow and signing. If you were around for Renny’s last signing, for the re-release of On the Loose , then you know you better show up early if you want to sit and see. The house will be packed, and the photos will be heart-breaking and beautiful. The evening will get under way at 6:30 p.m. For more information, call 247-1438.
