An evening of words and images at Diana Ingalls Leyba Studio and Gallery


Join author Marty Eberhardt and artist Elli Sorensen for Mysteries of the Gila, a reading and art exhibit.

In Marty Eberhardt’s second mystery in the Bea Rivers series, "Bones in the Back Forty," an old skeleton is found in a Tucson botanical garden. Meet some quirky suspects in a little town in southwest New Mexico called Copperton. Marty will read passages that take place in the Gila region. Elli Sorensen offers a new series of images representing the flora, fauna, and landscapes of the Gila River ecosystem.

Marty and Elli are local residents, award-winners, and fast friends. The reading will take place from 5:15-5:45, followed by questions and book signings at  Diana Ingalls Leyba Studio and Gallery, 315 N. Bullard St. in Silver City. Elli’s paintings will be on display and for sale throughout the evening. Light refreshments will be served. You can find out more about Marty at and Elli at
