A Conversation with Ghost Ranch Family and Friends

We begin with an apology to those of you who were not able to gain access to this evening’s webinar: Remembering the Jim Hall Years: A Conversation with Ghost Ranch Family and Friends.

We are not quite sure why some registrants were able to get in and others were not. We will be digging into things so hopefully, it will not happen again.

Fortunately, the evening was recorded and we are working to get it ready for you to watch. We know it might be a bit different than attending live but we trust you will enjoy the stories of Lesley Poling Kempes and her invited panelists.

The virtual world is a new expression for Ghost Ranch and we will continue to provide new offerings and we will keep working to eliminate the technical challenges.

Thursday, November 19, 2020, 5:30 MST.  Moderated by Lesley Poling-Kempes. Panelists included Chad Boliek, Jon Hall, Kathy Morrison, Rebecca Martinez, Cheryl Muceus, Lynett Gillette, Terry Evans, Sam Evans, Carolyn Barford and Willie Picaro.

Jim Hall became the director of Ghost Ranch in 1961 and with his wife, Ruth spent the next 25 years building the community and developing the place and the programs that made the ranch into a world-class conference center. When asked what theology the Presbyterian-owned Ghost Ranch taught and embraced Hall famously answered, “Theology? Theology is what you do.”

The Jim Hall Years is remembered in stories and photographs by people who participated in this remarkable trailblazing era of Ghost Ranch history and is moderated by Lesley Poling-Kempes, author of “Ghost Ranch” and “Ladies of the Canyons.”

Lesley Poling-Kempes is the award-winning author of seven fiction and nonfiction books about the American Southwest. In 2020 her work received the Harris Award “for outstanding contribution to the understanding of the people, culture, and history of the American West.”

“Ladies of the Canyons: A League of Extraordinary Women & Their Adventures in the American Southwest” won the 2016 Reading the West Book Award, the WILLA Literary Award, the Southwest Book Award, the Silver Medal for US History from the Independent Publishers Association, and the Border Book Award.

We hope you enjoyed this free event either live or via the recording provided. 
Please consider making a contribution so we can continue to bring you in-person and virtual offerings.
