Jim Griffith Book Release Event

Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 2:00p.m. —

Please join us at the Mission San Xavier del Bac to celebrate the release of our new James S. Griffith book, Saints, Statues, and Stories.

In his latest book, beloved folklorist “Big Jim” Griffith introduces us to the roadside shrines, artists, fiestas, saints, and miracles of Northern Mexico. With the expertise that nearly 60 years of traveling through Sonora brings, Griffith uncovers the meanings behind the devotional uses of religious art.

We would love to see you at the event as we celebrate the publication of Saints, Statues, and Stories, listen to local musicians, and sample Southwestern food.

RSVP and let us know you are coming!

Mission San Xavier del Bac is located at 1950 San Xavier Rd, Tucson, AZ 85746.
