Mesilla Valley Readers welcome author George Pintar Dec. 1

Posted

Local author George Pintar will speak to The Mesilla Valley Readers of Southern New Mexico Book Club 4-5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, via Zoom, the club said in a news release.

Pintar will discuss the books he has written and will present insights into the research and writing methods of his newest publications, “Navajo Tainted Beliefs” and “Navajo Revenge.”

The event is free and open to the public.

Pintar, an educator and business owner, is a contemporary New Mexican author originally from the Midwest. He spent 25 years as a grant writer and now focuses on fiction, the club said.

“Pintar started writing at 87 years of age and firmly believes it’s never too late to start a new career,” the club said. “With his feline companion Sir Gallagher, George conjures up tales of years gone by that will tickle the reader’s fancy forever. A teller of tales, Pintar dreams up humorous short, spirited stories.”

Pintar is best known for his fictional character Chile Charlie, the featured protagonist of “The Adventures of Chile Charlie.”

Pintar’s books are available on his website, https://georgepintarbooks.com/, and on amazon.com.
