Heloise provided Roswell with plenty of hints Thursday, as hundreds of fans poured into the Civic Center to hear the internationally-acclaimed syndicated columnist and best-selling author speak on the importance of reading. Her speech, Literacy: Make it Fun, was the featured New Mexico Centennial event for the Roswell Public Library, and came near the 50th anniversary of the Daily Record’s first printing of the original Heloise column.
Heloise took over the column when her mother, Heloise Bowles Cruse, passed away in 1977, and for about 35 years, she has been providing lifestyle tips on such topics as household management, business, travel and health and wellness. Her column Hints From Heloise runs seven days a week and is printed in more than 500 newspapers in the United States and internationally.
