National Book Festival

The characters Jim Chee, Joe Leaphorn and Bernadete Manuelito, made famous by Tony Hillerman, get a new story line in “Spider Woman’s Daughter,” by Hillerman’s daughter, Anne Hillerman. “Spider Woman” is Anne Hillerman’s first novel, though not her first book. She is the author of the award-winning “Tony Hillerman’s Landscape: On the Road with Chee and Leaphorn.” Hillerman has also been editorial page editor of the Albuquerque Journal and the Santa Fe New Mexican. She is a director of the Wordharvest Writers Workshops and the Tony Hillerman Writers Conference.
