It was the book that almost wasn’t.
While Arizona’s Centennial, book, “Arizona: 100 Years Grand” by Lisa Schnebly Heidinger ended up being voted OneBookAZ and selling thousands of copies, it was not only rejected – but accepted and then rejected again.
The author will share the story of “the little book that could” and some stories from the book at the July meeting.
Lisa Schnebly Heidinger has been telling Arizona stories for more than 30 years: from being a cub reporter for the Green Valley News in 1979 through reporting for KTVK-TV3 in Northern Arizona. She’s now working on her 8th book. (And yes, that Schnebly: Sedona Schnebly was her great-grandmother.)

DIRECTIONS: Chaparral Suites is in Scottsdale at Chaparral Rd just north of Old Town. Chaparral Rd has a light. Parking is in the rear – two large parking lots.
Note: best to enter from the middle elevator for the 4th Floor Grille – not from the main entrance.
From the 101 freeway exit Chaparral Rd and go west. Just prior to Scottsdale Rd enter the side drive at 4th Floor Grille – take that elevator. Note awning marked 4th Floor Grille on the Chaparral side. This is the easiest way in – again, not through the main lobby. Welcome!
