2021 NAGS Program Schedule
Saturday, 26 June @ 1 PM : Thomas MacEntee - “How Do I Know What I Don’t Know?”
Arizona State Library offers lectures - must register as space is limited
Author and historian Lesley Poling-Kempes will show historic photos and discuss the research journey of discovery that became her celebrated book, Ladies of the Canyons: A League of Extraordinary Women & their Adventures in the American Southwest (UA Press 2015). Ladies of the Canyons is the true story of remarkable women who left the security and comforts of genteel Victorian society and journeyed to the American Southwest in search of a wider view of themselves and their world. Educated and restless, mischief-makers, heroines, and epic-builders. These words describe a circle of women whose influence and impact in the American Southwest in the early 20th century have largely been left out of the pages of history. Natalie Curtis, Carol Stanley, Mary Cabot Wheelwright, and Louisa Wade Wetherill, to name a few. Her talk is at 1 p.m., Wednesday, June 23, 2021 and will be held virtually on Cisco WebEx Meetings. Attendees are encouraged to register at the Arizona State Library to receive the link to the presentation.

The talk is at 1 p.m., Wednesday, 14 July 2021 and will be held virtually on Cisco WebEx Meetings. Attendees are encouraged to register above at the Arizona State Library to receive the link to the presentation.

If you just want to sit in on a Zoom meeting all you need is the ability to watch a video on your computer. If you want to participate you need a microphone. Many computers have a speaker and a microphone built in. If yours does not, you can obtain a headset with a boom microphone. External speakers will improve your experience. If you want to be seen by others you need a web camera. If your computer does not have a camera you can purchase one.
There is a good video tutorial at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_8vQDfSzdY
