JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. — A New Mexico library is preparing to sell unedited manuscripts and signed books by late author Tony Hillerman.
The Jemez Springs Public Library announced it will allow fans to purchase the rare Hillerman items at a special book sale on Saturday.
The sale is part of the Cabin Fever Festival in Jemez Springs.
Officials say at least 30 published and unpublished works written between 1970 and 1990 will be sold at the sale.
The items were donated from Hillerman’s daughter, author Anne Hillerman.
Proceeds from sales will go directly to the friends for the library’s numerous reading programs including its summer programs.
Tony Hillerman died in 2008 at 83. He authored a number of books and was best known for his Navajo Tribal Police mystery novels.
