Last year we couldn't spell "sesquicentennial," this year we're having one!
by Scott Dickensheets | posted March 21, 2014
2014 marks 150 years since America, possibly against its better judgment, let Nevada into the union. Statehood, yay! What more appropriate way to celebrate than with a large, heavy book? Here, in the hand of its editor, Geoff Schumacher, is the only copy currently in Nevada of that very volume — the official large, heavy book of Nevada's 150th. (Disclosure: I served as assistant editor and I still don't have a #%&*! copy yet.) Be patient: You can get your own hand on one of these bad boys come June 12, when the book will launch with an event at the Clark County Library.
Pick up your Desert Companion today at one of these Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or Jamba Juice locations.
Also available at Clark County and Henderson libraries.
