July 2018 - Between the Pages: New Mexico Book Co-op


This is the story of two little books that could. They were planned to document the North Valley before memories faded with respectable, but small sales. From the minute both books were released, they've sold like crazy. Bookstores and the publisher ran out of books many times and the original books have already been reprinted.

Author Francelle Alexander grew up on 4th Street and went to school in the North Valley. She understands and has lived in the North Valley. The two books were originally going to be one, larger book but it was felt people wanted the book that coincided with their neighborhood. But most of the sales of the books have been for both books by the same person because the history of the North Valley is intertwined.

The books cover the early settlers, floods, now-gone businesses, homes, famous residents, and above all, families. The books showcase the North Valley through the land grants, villages, and now vibrant communities. It is ironic that recently deceased Los Ranchos Mayor, Larry Abraham, has photos that he took in both books.

This is a book that helps every resident to understand their history. You can get both books at Bookworks and Los Poblanos Gift Shop in the North Valley or Treasure Chest Books in Old Town. Francelle will be signing books at the Rio Grande Book booth at Lavender in the Village, July 7th.
