Library Author Series features author, songwriter Tuesday

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents an evening with award-winning author Willy Vlautin talking about his new novel, “Don’t Skip Out on Me” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 8 in Library Hall. Vlautin delivers an emotionally raw tale of a tragic and beautiful life. In addition, Vlautin’s band, Richmond created a companion soundtrack available to accompany the new novel.

In the book, Horace Hopper has spent most of his life on a Nevada sheep ranch but dreams of something bigger. Mr. and Mrs. Reese, aging ranchers, took him in after his parents abandoned him and treated him like a son, intending to someday leave the ranch in his hands. But Horace, ashamed of not only his half-Paiute, half-Irish heritage but also the fact that his parents didn’t want him, feels as if he doesn’t truly belong on the ranch or anywhere. Knowing that he needs to make a name for himself, Horace leaves behind the only home he has ever known for Tucson, where he can prove his worth as a championship boxer.

Books will be available for sale and signing at this free Library Author Series event courtesy of Off the Beaten Path Bookstore. Visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
