An on-line exhibit relating to the life of Tony Hillerman is now open for viewing. The exhibit was assembled by the University of New Mexico Libraries Center for Southwest Research and Special Collections, drawing from its collection of Tony Hillerman’s papers. It features a dozen documents and artifacts selected by James McGrath Morris whose biography Tony Hillerman: A Life was published in October. Each item is accompanied by a description as well as bibliographical information.

I am a biographer and writer of narrative non-fiction. I have just completed a biography of writer Tony Hillerman, the author of ground-breaking mysteries set in the Navajo Nation. It should be in stores in October. Hillerman, in the words of the Los Angeles Times, “reinvented the mystery novel as a venue for the exploration and celebration of Native American history, culture and identity.”
