Navajo-Hopi Observer

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Of Lines and Layers, the Second Annual Grand Canyon Authors Symposium at the Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA), will again offer the opportunity to join your favorite Colorado Plateau authors and archaeologists for an afternoon of readings, book signings, talks, and panel discussions on Saturday from noon to 5 p.m.

Inspired by the museum's current exhibit Grand Archaeology: Excavation and Discovery along the Colorado River, this year's Grand Canyon Authors Symposium will focus on archaeology and stories about the mighty Colorado River. Nineteen Grand Canyon authors and archaeologists will explore the Canyon through words and images.

Included in the author lineup are Bob Audretsch, Jan Balsom, Ron Blakey, Elias Butler, Jim Collette, Brad Dimock, Matthew Henry Hall, Stephen Hirst, Don Keller, Brian Kranzler, Ivo Lucchitta, Tom Martin, Robert Mesta, Seth Muller, Tom Myers, Jason Nez, Wayne Ranney, Kim Spurr, and Scott Thybony. In addition to the adult author sessions, children's authors Matthew Henry Hall and Robert Mesta, and a group of MNA docents will offer children's story reading, game playing, and an interactive archaeology dig activity. Authors will sign books following each event, adjacent to the MNA Bookstore.

The Grand Canyon Authors Symposium is open to the public and entrance is included with Museum admission. Museum members' admission is free. The event is produced by MNA, with special thanks to the Grand Canyon Association. This event is part of the Colorado River Days, July 24-25. The Colorado River Days celebrate the Colorado River and raise awareness of Colorado River issues, especially pertaining to northern Arizona and the Grand Canyon.

The Museum of Northern Arizona is supported by Arizona Commission on the Arts, BBB revenues from the city of Flagstaff, and Flagstaff Cultural Partners. The museum sits at the base of the San Francisco Peaks, three miles north of historic downtown Flagstaff on Highway 180, scenic route to the Grand Canyon. It is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information about the museum is available at (928) 774-5213 or
