The book will be available for purchase and signing (hardcover, $23). This event is free and open to the public.Teresa Jordan grew up in a house full of books on an isolated ranch in Wyoming where the love of learning she acquired in the local one-room school carried her to Yale and into a lifetime of inquiry. Her books include The Year of Living Virtuously (Weekends Off), inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s list of 13 virtues and the 7 deadly sins; the memoir Riding the White Horse Home; and Cowgirls: Women of the American West, one of the earliest books to give voice to contemporary women working on the land. An artist as well as an author, her illustrations feature in several of her books. Hal Cannon’s first language is melodic. He plays the banjo and guitar as well as several other instruments, and sings with 3hattrio and Red Rock Rondo. As Founding Director of the Western Folklife Center and the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, he has published dozens of books and recordings on the folk arts of the West. He has also co-produced over one-hundred features for NPR and PBS with Taki Telonidis and is currently a regular documentary producer for Australia’s Radio National.

About Teresa’s The Year of Living Virtuously (Weekends Off):
“As a refresher course in living a more moral life, Ms. Jordan launched a year-long exploration of how virtue and vice play out in ordinary life…. The stimulating results are gathered in the engaging and moving collection The Year of Living Virtuously (Weekends Off).” --Tom Nolan, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE.
“This is a book you will want to have on your bedside for the rest of your life.” --Betsy Burton, RADIOWEST Holiday Book Show.
“Writer and visual artist Jordan takes a page from Benjamin Franklin and embarks on a yearlong quest to master the 13 virtues Franklin explored in his ‘project of arriving at moral perfection.’ While perfection is not in the cards, the process is both fun and eye opening.” --O! MAGAZINE
About Hal Cannon’s music:
“An enchanting set of history and mystery, jubilant celebration and soulful melancholy." --Western Culture News & Reviews
“His album is a well-made piece of handicraft, like a riding bit designed to slip gently into a horse's mouth, whose bridle rests securely in the hands of a man who knows how to find his way in the dark." --Hank Davis for Victory Music
"Fine work. All tracks have an elegant sort of cross ‘tween folk, cowboy and classical.” --Tom Russell, singer-songwriter
