'Bless Me, Ultima' Novelist Anaya To Be Honored – The Associated Press
The godfather of contemporary Chicano literature has been chosen as the 2nd ever inductee into the Albuquerque Wall of Fame.
Author Rudolfo Anaya is scheduled to be honored Tuesday at the Alvarado Transportation Center.
Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry says Anaya is receiving a Wall of Fame nod because his descriptive narratives opened up Albuquerque and New Mexico to the world.
Anaya was born in Pastura, New Mexico, and raised in nearby Santa Rosa.
