3D Exhibit: William Dunning - “Visits from St. Nicholas ... Through the Years”


VGPL will host an Eldorado at Santa Fe collector William Dunning December 2-30 in the lobby glass case.


This exhibit shares parodies and editions of the classic Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore, published in 1823. The books and related material are from the collection of 20-year Eldorado resident Bill Dunning, who has channeled the jolly old elf for children of all ages for a quarter of a century and will be at the ECIA’s December 7 holiday party in the Community Center. His background in writing, journalism, teaching and broadcasting shines through low-powered ELDORADIO 1660 AM, which he calls “the only radio station in the world that cares first about Eldorado.” He is also active with the Santa Fe Model Railroad Club.
