The Opera, the Acequia and the WPA: Stories from Santa Fe Living Treasures

This week’s show excerpts the oral histories collected by the Santa Fe Living Treasures‘ committee as part of its work honoring community elders.  Stan and Rose Mary Crawford, Gillian Wethey McHugh (left) and Virginia Soto tell their stories about Marlon Brando, building the Santa Fe Opera, managing the Acecia and getting a job with the WPA.  Nancy Dahl of the Living Treasures’ committee talks about the organization and its history.  Also, a book review from Allie Rand — a bookseller at Collected Works bookstore.  Allie reviews the Gathering of Waters by Berniece L. McFadden, one of this month’s staff picks.
