Poet Signs New Book
Bonnie Buckley Maldonado gave a reading and signed copies of her new book, “Secret Lives of Us Kids: A Childhood Memoir 1941-1945,' at Western New Mexico University on Sunday. The book tells the story of her childhood growing up in the oil fields on the border of Montana and Canada. The stories were comprised of retellings from her brother, Patrick, and passages from a daily diary she kept during that time. “Tell your stories,' she advised her audience. “Tape them, write them, do something with them.Your children and grandchildren will appreciate it.' Maldonado was Silver City’s first poet laureate. She has published several other books of poems about her early life in Montana.
