Booktalk with Tom McKay
April 10, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Local author, Tom McKay, will discuss his new book “West Fork” and answer audience questions.
Tom McKay was raised in a small Mississippi River town, graduated from a Midwestern liberal arts college, and has lived in and traveled through much of the upper Midwest, meeting and talking and working with all sorts of ordinary, yet often memorable, individuals. He has parlayed his experiences into a well-written book that should appeal to those who grew up in in rural settings or who have lived and worked in small towns, which were once the backbone of America but are now too often struggling backwaters.
“West Fork” is the story of one such community and of a young man who, moving there, finds purpose and love, but struggles through the years to hold onto both in the face of inexorable change and heart-rending loss.
