Michele Buchanan will be at the UNM Bookstore on Tuesday, April 5 at 1 p.m. to sign copies of Scota’s Harp (Mercury Heartlink, 2015). This event is open to the public.

According to oral Celtic legend, a warrior princess named Scota came from Egypt and claimed Ireland for her son Ir. From Ireland, her descendants called the “Scotti” invaded more land and named it Scotland. Though this story is not widely accepted, the truth is found in their names, their language, and their courageous fight to keep their culture alive. Scota’s Harp combines Celtic and Egyptian history, Scottish stone of destiny, Celtic harp, archaeology, and adventure across the Mediterranean Ocean to the British Isles.

Buchanan is a graduate of UNM, Los Alamos Branch. She is a retired special education teacher for Albuquerque Public Schools. Since retirement, Buchanan immersed herself in learning how to play the Celtic harp and has traveled the Renfgaire and Celtic festival circuit. She and her husband live in Albuquerque.

The UNM Bookstore is located at 2301 Central Ave. NE at the intersection of Cornell and Central. Contact Marie Claire Day at 277-1388 or mclaired@unm.edu for more information.
