Chasing Centuries at Mesquite Branch Library
November 23, 2019 @ 2:00 pm–3:00 pm
Join Ron Parker, author of Chasing Centuries, as he examines the relationship between pre-Columbian Native Americans and agaves (century plants) in Arizona. These folks developed, gardened, and farmed their own unique agaves, and many of these plants are still found exactly where they were originally planted hundreds of years ago. It is a fascinating and uniquely Arizona story! Books will be available for purchase, with a portion of proceeds going to the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
