2021 Arizona Author Series: Lisa Schnebly Heidinger “Sedona Schnebly: Telling My Great-Grandmother’s Story”

Author Lisa Schnebly Heidinger will present a talk, "Sedona Schnebly: Telling My Great-Grandmother’s Story" as part of the State of Arizona Research Library’s 2021 Arizona Author Series. The talk is at 1 p.m., Wednesday, July 14th, and will be held virtually on Zoom. Attendees are encouraged to register below to receive the link to the presentation. After the talk, there will be time for questions from the audience.

Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly followed her husband west when their small Missouri town condemned his Presbyterian religion. Arriving in Arizona Territory in 1901, they planted orchards and hosted early tourists in what is now named Sedona. After a lifetime of collecting stories, author Lisa Schnebly Heidinger created a vivid journal beginning with the Schnebly family’s genteel beginnings, taking them on adventures including trappers, rattlesnakes and colorful guests. This book gives a voice to a fiercely private woman who lived exhilaration and heartbreak.

Lisa Schnebly Heidinger has spent her career telling stories. She began as a cub reporter for the Green Valley News, moving into radio, then television, in Tucson.  She began writing magazine features during those years. In 1989 she moved to Flagstaff, fulfilling the double dream of working in a Top 20 market and living in Northern Arizona, as KTVK-TV3’s Bureau reporter. Once married to their satellite operator, Lisa saw that having a family and being held over for a 10 p.m. live in Holbrook would be tough. So she resigned and moved to Phoenix, where she wrote an op-ed column for the Sunday Republic called Arizona Correspondent. She wrote her first book in 1995. Since then she’s written ten books about aspects of Arizona, including the official Centennial book, which won OneBookAZ and resulted in a year of touring libraries around the state.  Two more books are in the publication pipeline.

This event is part of the 2021 Arizona Author Series. This program is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Arizona Center for the Book, a Library of Congress Center for the Book Affiliate.
