Pat Rimmington reading at Copper Mountain College

    January 19, 2010


    JOSHUA TREE, Ca – Author Pat Rimmington will hold a reading at Copper Mountain College on January 27, 2010 in Bruce’s Coyote Kitchen.

    Pat was born in Great Britain and came to the USA in 1967. Ten years later she and her husband Sid bought a somewhat dilapidated homestead house in Twentynine Palms. Repairing of the mud brick structure led her to take courses in New Mexico on adobe reconstruction and repair. This became an opportunity to begin meeting other adobe dwellers in Twentynine Palms.

    Pat Rimmington’s first edition of The Adobes of Twentynine Palms, documenting the historical homestead structures in the city, was published in 1988 and has long been out of print. Demand for the book prompted her to create a second edition of that work, which has been revised to include additional photographs and updated information about the historic adobes.
    This reading is part of an ongoing series of author and speaker events sponsored by the Copper Mountain College Foundation.  Ms. Rimmington will sign books after the event while light refreshments are served.
