56 March 3 - 16, 2012 Book signing for women writers A celebration and book signing for


“Skirting Traditions,” an anthology published by Arizona Press Women (APW) for the Arizona Centennial, will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Sun., March 4 at Arizona Art Alliance Gallery at The Pavilions at Talking Stick, 9011 E. Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale. The series of stories about women writers


and journalists from 1912 to 2012 is the cul- mination of about three years of efforts by 18 award-winning members of APW, of which SanTan Sun News Editor Lynda Exley and writer Joan Westlake are members. Designated as an Arizona Centennial


Legacy Project by the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission, each story chronicles the life of a woman writer or journalist in Arizona who made a significant contribution to the history of the state, beginning with Sharlot Hall, who campaigned to have Arizona admitted to the Union as a separate state, and ending with Jana Bommersbach and Pam Knight Stevenson. The women who appear in the book were chosen through a nomination process and are representative of many others throughout the state during the centennial period. “We anticipate that the public, historians, journalists and devotees of the Old West will

be interested in reading about the remarkable women profiled in this anthology,” says Brenda Warneka, a co-editor who conceived of the project. Other co-editors are Carol Hughes, Lois


McFarland, June P. Payne, Sheila Roe and Knight Stevenson. The stories were researched and written by members of APW, who, in addition to the coeditors, include Gail Bornfield, Vera Marie Badertscher, Carol Osman Brown, Jan Cleere, Jane Eppinga, Marion E. Gold, Carol Jean La Valley, Barbara Bayless Lacy, Elizabeth Bruening Lewis, Patricia Myers, Marion Peddle and Arlene Uslander. The “Skirting Traditions” book project is


sponsored by the National Federation of Press Women Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) organiza- tion. Proceeds from sales will fund scholarships for Arizona journalism students at Arizona insti- tutions of higher learning. To order the 308-page paperback, which retails for $22.95, visit the Tucson-based publisher www.Wheatmark.com, www.Amazon.comor www.BarnesandNoble.c om. An e-version of the book is planned for a later release. For more information on the project,
