A READING AND BOOK SIGNING WITH PATRICIA D. CAFFERATA, AUTHOR OF CHRISTMAS IN NEVADA
Patricia D. Cafferata has served in the Nevada Assembly, as Nevada State treasurer, and as a district attorney of Lincoln, Lander, and Esmeralda Counties. She is co-author with her mother of Barbara Vuchanovich: From Nevada to Congress, and Back Again. A lifelong resident of Reno, her columns on local history have been collected in three volumes of Tales of the Biggest Little City in the World.
The delightful and touching stories in Christmas in Nevada tell how Nevadans have celebrated the holiday, from 1858 to the present day. Some are told by well-known Nevadans, such as Mark Twain, Robert Laxalt, and the former governors Bob List and Richard Bryan, but much more of the book shows ordinary Nevadans celebrating in diverse ways the wonders of the season. Whether Santa arrives on a sleigh in a mining cap in Silver Peak or a zip line down Fremont Street, Christmas in Nevada brings warm memories, excitement, and good cheer.
