Author and Old Trails Museum Director Ann-Mary Lutzick will give a brief talk about the new pictorial history entitled Winslow, the latest entry in Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series. The museum will host this free presentation, followed by book sales and signings, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, in La Posada Hotel’s Ballroom in Winslow.
Winslow explores the city’s prehistory, founding, expansion and heyday through the 1960s, revealing the economic, civic, community and recreational lives of its residents over time. Winslow’s rich and varied history connects it with the Southwest and the nation as a whole in diverse and unexpected ways.
Lutzick drew on the museum’s rich photographic collections and the community’s deep sense of place for this visual retrospective of Winslow’s history. She also received research and editing assistance from former directors, Winslow Historical Society members and others helping to preserve the city’s history.
The Winslow Historical Society hopes that Winslow provides current and former residents, as well as national and international visitors, with the most comprehensive overview of the city’s multi-faceted history published to date.
