Join us via Zoom on Nov. 21 at 3 p.m. to hear Ms. Bowden talk about her newest book, A Stranger At My Door, the story of her encounter with a lost and desperate man from Guatemala. She will also discuss the humanitarian work being done during the COVID epidemic regarding the migration of people asking for asylum. Migrants are still attempting to cross through deadly stretches of the desert. Peg has been present at the border wall construction sites and will share her conversations with workers and federal security personnel.
Peg Bowden is a retired public health nurse living on a ranch in the San Cayetano Mountains of southern Arizona. Most of her professional life was spent in Oregon, but like most desert rats, she returned to the Sonoran Desert. She presently volunteers with the Green Valley/Sahuarita Samaritans, working with the migrant population at the U.S./Mexico border. A musician and artist, Peg pounds the timpani in the Green Valley Concert Band and paints watercolors of her beloved desert. She lives with her husband Lester Weil, two dogs, a cat, and a lot of open range cattle.
