Mar­garet Moore Booker, au­thor of the 2009 book The Santa Fe House: His­toric Res­i­dences, En­chant­ing Adobes, and Ro­man­tic Re­vivals, is the fea­tured speaker in theWed­nes­day, Jan. 20, in­stall­ment of the Fray Angélico Chávez His­tory Li­brary lunchtime lec­ture se­ries Brain­power & Brown­bags.

Moore, a Chicago na­tive who was raised in Con­necti­cut and is now a Santa Fe res­i­dent, cov­ered many of the town’s best old homes in her book.
