Great Day for McCracken County

Posted on March 11, 2010. Filed under: library |

If you missed meeting Garth Stein on Tuesday, March 9th at WKCTC, you missed a wonderful time.  As well as he can write in the voice of a dog, he can speak and be personable and friendly.   He shared a bit of his bestselling book, The Art of Racing in the Rain, and told stories about his muse (his wife)  and his real life experiences in auto racing.   Poor, poor Miata never saw it coming.

His book should contain a warning, once you open it you will not be able to close it.  It gallops along at a pace only a real life Labrador Retriever can set and takes your heart along with it.   The demise of the pooch is seen from the first chapter and in Enzo, the dog’s view, is just one lap in the racetrack of his future plans.    It is a wonderful book so if you missed the author’s visit to Paducah, do not miss the book- available in CD and LP as well as the book at MCPL.   And Patrick Dempsey has been signed to plan the human in the upcoming motion picture, but don’t wait until then!

Hopefully, you did not miss Professor Andrew Halford’s unusual treatment of the book.  If you could not attend his Off the Shelf  book discussion, you will want to catch it on TV tonight- March 11, 16 or 18th at 7:00 p.m. on channel 7.  You will want to tape it, DVR it, transcribe it, and watch it again. 

Your next opportunity to meet an adult author will be November, David Baldacci will be appearing at WKCTC to discuss his book, Wish You Well. 

‘Til next time!
