Yuma, Arizona - Author Barbara McAleese will visit the Main Library on Saturday, October 24th, at 1:00 p.m. to discuss her book Echoes Along the Pecos River, and her experience publishing a paperback.

"Echoes Along the Pecos River is a vivid history of five generations of the Babb family who ranched in West Texas. They survived it all through good times and bad, drought and loss, murder and danger, but always protective of their family and those dear to them. The story begins with my infamous great great grandfather who claims he killed 23 men but never went to jail for long. It includes my hardworking Christian grandmother who would lose three children, one who served and died in World War II, including his letters he wrote home. Throughout their lives there was love, laughter and always intrigue of some kind. The story includes my childhood memories, extraordinary tales full of adventure of all kinds: runaway horses, snakes and horned toads."

Books will be available for purchase, and book signings will commence after the program. There is no charge to attend.

The Main Library is located at 2951 S 21st Drive. For more information, call (928) 782-1871.
