DISPLAY: Remembering Tony Hillerman

Stop by the library and check out the display of Tony Hillerman's mysteries set in the Navajo nation. Those of us who remember the antics of Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee will sorely miss the mystical world that Hillerman introduced us to and about which he taught us so much. You can read Hillerman's obituary in the New York Times.
