[auth] The Roswell Museum and Art Center will host nonfiction book signings, Saturday, July 20, featuring authors who mix storytelling, suspense and local southwest history into seamless works to bring the past alive again,

The signings will take place in the center’s store, 100 W. 11th St., from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The first author, David S. Turk, is the historian of the United States Marshals Service. He will be signing his latest book, “Blackwater Draw,” a study on the murders of three men in Lincoln County who started a war. His telling also includes the infamous Billy the Kid.

Also signing his newest book, entitled “Robert Kelsey Wylie, Forgotten Cattle King of Texas,” Clifford R. Caldwell will be once again visiting RMAC. As a member of the Texas State Historical Association, Caldwell used his extensive knowledge of Texas history to construct his latest book about one of the first trail drivers who drove an early cattle herd west from Texas to New Mexico.

“Cliff has signed here before,” said RMAC store manager Charles Bentley. “He’s a real character. He can pack a house.”

There is no registration required; simply show up. For more information, call Charles Bentley at 624-6744, ext. 17.
