April Events Celebrate “6 Main Centennial"

BISBEE, AZ – In Spring 2007, the Copper Queen Library, one of Bisbee’s most cherished cultural treasures, will celebrate her hundredth birthday at the 6 Main Street location in Downtown’s Historic District, and residents are invited to join in the celebration in a variety of ways: by participating in an April 11 book discussion of Going Back to Bisbee at 6:30pm; by dropping in to share birthday cake and beverages on April 12 at 11am; by attending Richard Shelton’s free reading from Going Back to Bisbee – and, perhaps, if time permits, from his newest book of poetry, The Last Person to Hear Your Voice -- on April 12 at 6:30pm; by joining the Friends of the Copper Queen Library for their annual membership tea on April 14 from noon-2; or by joining Arizona Humanities Council Chautauquan Judy N. Temple on April 18 at 6:30 as she presents the life of Mary Hunter Austin, author of Land of Little Rain and one of the Southwest’s first environmental writers.
