If it is possible to say someone can be born a cowboy, then Alan Day was born one. He was part of the family’s third generation to grow up on the 200,000-acre Lazy B cattle ranch straddling the high deserts of southern Arizona and New Mexico. Join us at the Downtown Chandler Library on Saturday, Sep. 29 at 10:30 a.m. for Our Stories: Life on the Lazy B to hear Alan’s stories of the cowboy life in Arizona.
In addition to co-authoring with his sister, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the New York Times bestselling memoir Lazy B, Alan also is the author of The Horse Lover: A Cowboy’s Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs.
Alan explores ranching and cowboy life from the chuck wagon years of his childhood, through his adult years of increasing bureaucracy, airplanes, computers and now even drones. At the heart of his stories lie adventures that most of us will never experience, as well as a deep love of the natural world.
Our Stories is a free annual speaker series open to the public, with each session sharing first-hand accounts and expert insights into the history of Chandler, the Valley and Arizona. It is hosted by the Chandler Public Library, Friends of the Chandler Public Library and Chandler Museum, with support from the Chandler Historical Society.
