4/23/2012 8:03:00 AM Another Evening at the Pink
with Jim Bishop
Local author Jim Bishop returns to The Well red Coyote on Friday, April 27, at 7 p.m., with more tales from his book, The Pink Nectar Café: Myths and Mysteries.
Join Bishop for a fun and informal evening of storytelling by Sedona's master of the tall (and often true) tale.
In The Pink Nectar Café, Bishop shows us that facts can be more potent than fiction! For the past 25 years he's been collecting stories in the Southwest -- some about bygone days, others from only yesterday, but all animated by strange events and unforgettable characters. "A collage," said one professor of the book, "woven from mystery and a pure sense of place."
Bishop's career began with Newsweek magazine in New York City in 1958 where he covered Wall Street. Later he became the magazine's West Coast correspondent with a focus on films, aerospace and politics.
In 1964, he co-authored a special project on the Apollo Project and another special issue on the SST. From 1966 to 1977, he was Newsweek's Deputy Bureau Chief in the nation's capital. He covered Watergate, and wrote the first national cover stories on the looming energy and environmental dilemmas.
During his career he has profiled such diverse personages as Robert Kennedy and Howard Hughes, Hedy Lamar, Robert McNamara, Walt Disney and Ralph Nader, Stewart Udall and Robert Shields.
His books include The Consumer Revolution, Creating Abundance and Epitaph for a Desert Anarchist, the first biography about Cactus Ed Abbey. He also has contributed to several books on the history of the Verde Valley.
The Well Red Coyote is located at 3190 W. 89A, at the corner of 89A and Dry Creek Road.
