      EVENT DETAILS
      Timeless Caravan

      Join us for a lecture by former United States Ambassador to Spain Edward Romero and noted New Mexico historian Dr. Thomas E. Chávez about a story of an American odyssey shared by many families in the American Southwest. The lecture will be followed by a book signing of Timeless Caravan: The Story of a Spanish-American Family by Dr. Thomas E. Chávez. Stay for a social gathering (a cash bar will be available, together with complementary snacks) with Ambassador Romero and Dr. Chávez.  

      The book will be available for purchase in Albuquerque at the Museum Store (505-242-0434).

      Based on extensive research as well as on a career working for cultural institutions, historian Thomas E. Chávez has created a historical novel about the American southwest, specifically in New Mexico and Arizona, a place where Europeans settled in 1598. Here is a historical narrative about one of those families. The story begins and ends with Edward Romero who became the United States ambassador to Spain and is prototypical of the thousands of young men and some women who sought a new life in the new world and became American. These were people taking risks, accepting fate, succeeding, failing, loving, and hating. The Romero story is an American odyssey shared by any number of families in a region and whose cultural legacy is part of the heritage of the United States that only recently has come to the fore in the United States’ national consciousness. This story delineates a part of the heritage of every American and enriches an already beautiful history.
