Lauren Camp, BEI Emeritus Fellow, will be hosting a reading of her new book of poetry: Turquoise Door. Catch the event, Sunday, October 21 at 3 pm at Bookworks in Albuquerque, NM.

Turquoise Door, Lauren Camp’s fourth book, introduces readers to the cultural anthropology of Taos, New Mexico in the early 20th century. This collection of poems brings the author’s personal attentions and the contemporary realities of the Southwest into a conversation with the historical forces of East Coast transplant Mabel Dodge Luhan—the early feminist, visionary arts patron, and writer who crusaded to create a utopian society in Taos. The poems engage with Mabel, her fourth husband Tony Lujan, and the many talented individuals who visited them in salons and residencies in her adobe home.”
