The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Jan. 25 from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the UA Main Library. A book signing will follow the lecture. Copies of Sheridan's books, "Arizona: A History, Revised Edition" and "Landscapes of Fraud: Mission Tumacácori, the Baca Float, and the Betrayal of the O'odham," will be available for purchase.

The related exhibit, “Mapping Arizona: From Mexican Territory to U.S. State,” offers a visual illustration of Arizona’s path to statehood as documented through historical maps of the region. On display in the UA Main Library from Jan. 6 – March 28, 2012, "Mapping Arizona" is one of several exhibits, lectures and events hosted by the University Libraries in celebration of the state’s Centennial.
