There’s an interesting new blog that has just gone online. From Karen Young:
Responding to an ongoing conversation here at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House regarding Taos and its draw for strong women like Mabel and many of her guests, we have created a blog site “Mabel and the Remarkable Women of Taos.”
The site was launched last Saturday and is already creating a stir of interest and comments. You can find us at mabeldodgeluhan.blogspot.com
With Mabel Dodge Luhan as a focal point, we will profile her and other remarkable women in her circle and time; delve into stories of women who arrived before Mabel, like Francisca Quijosa who received a Spanish land grant in Taos in 1715; introduce contemporary women of Taos; inform blog visitors about happenings at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House and throughout the Taos community that link with issues congruent with Mabel’s life, idea, and activities.
One of the exciting bits of synchronicity stimulated by the blog is that Taos will be naming 2012 as the “Year of the Remarkable Women.” Celebrations during the year will include workshops, exhibitions, lectures, theater and many other events…our moderator, Liz Cunningham, will keep you aware of the planned happenings on the blog.
