The smiling women above met at Terisita’s on March 30, 2011, bursting with the desire to get to know the interesting and resourceful, local and international women of Álamos. If you live in Álamos, Sonora, Mexico, or visit regularly, we want to hear your story and we want to share it on this blog and in a book.
Donna Love, author/memoirist, will gladly receive your story for publication. See Story Guidelines for more information. Excerpts from stories will soon be posted on this blog for all the world to see.
Joan Winderman, author/jewelry maker, is besotted collecting names of Álamos artists (105++) and is committed to this project.
